Sarah, directed by Peter Riddihough, is an abstract portrait of a young woman experiencing homelessness in Hamilton, Ontario.
The film works beautifully. Riddihough paints a raw, harsh reality of Sarah’s situation, and we get narration that further defines how Sarah perceives the world, and it feels like we’re with her on the journey.
Sarah easily finds emotional connection with the audience. The lead actress, Kit Simmons, who is the film’s emotional core, has immense range and vulnerability.
This one is a must see.
