CGiii Comment

Credit to the production design - the time is captured to perfection.

This stands heads and shoulders above its lesbian contemporaries - raising the bar for consecutive lady-on-lady films.

Hopefully, future directors will take note.

The acting is precise, the direction - atmospheric and riveting.

But, it is the writing that plucks this from the mundane - an out-of-this-world tale with enough little plot twists to keep the most skeptical guessing.

Good work.


The(ir) Blurb...

A grieving upper class woman becomes a "Lady Visitor" at Millbank prison, hoping to escape her troubles and be a guiding figure in the lives of the female prisoners. Of all her friendships with prisoners, she is most fascinated by Selina - a medium. Set in the 1870s.
