I cannot wait to rewatch this film in a few months, or a year. My brain is trying to frame a narrative but that’s just not what this film is meant to do.

I’m as detached from the film as Morvern is as from her trauma. It’s a nice escape from my mind. I have to marinate with this now.

My 2500th check, and it deserved that honour. The soundtrack is just absolutely amazing. Samantha Morton's performance in the title role is the best thing about the movie though, she was just fantastic. The rest of the cast too, for that matter.

I have to disagree highly with the people in this comment section saying it's "boring" and "empty", and whatnot. It's a great road movie in my opinion, and just as many of the greatest road movies, this one is more concerned about mood and atmosphere than it is about putting forth a more straightforward plot. Which is not to say that things don't happen in the movie.

An interesting response from a female writing/directing team to the Danny Boyle-style Scottish book adaptations. Good music, good cinematography, good performances combine to create a brooding experience, although the movie does meander and is not as visceral as the aforementioned Boyle efforts.

Is it my system? The music is very loud but I can hardly hear the dialogue.

Completely vapid self-indulgent wish fulfillment by a vapid self-indulgent woman writer/director who probably had everything given to her much in the same way as the character in the movie. No depth, no story, barely any character. The best thing you can say about the movie is that it's realistic. Watch this girl indulge in food, booze, sex, music, and slutty travel. Hedonism disguised as something deeper.
At least in Human Traffic, Go, and its ilk they never pretended to be more than what they were and they had better soundtracks too. In this crap you only get headbanging GOA and other thump-thump subgenres of trance. No thanks.

That was dull.

I don't really see the point in the movie, there was no real story to it and it didn't even end in a particularly exciting way.

It's a BBC Film so obviously it's very independent and indie films usually have a fairly complex, original storyline. But if you are going to do that, you at least need an exciting storyline with something to it. I feel this was just an excuse to get as much nudity as they could in a movie and the writers were trying to aim it at a teenage audience because of that and there's no real point to it.

Or maybe I'm completely missing the point of the film as it's featured on three lists on here and has won 9 awards in total, 2 of which were at Cannes.
