It’s a thoughtful, honest and touching work, especially for women who love women.
It is rare to see a film about female relationships that is presented in such a subtle and moving way. Eva and Kat are two women who are in a strongly developed lesbian relationship. They live on a boat that journeys through the canals of London and life seems fine, although there is a nagging idea that they may want to have children. Into the mix arrives the male friend of one of the women who may be able to satisfy the desire for a child. Yet things are not that simple, with the metaphor of the boat’s slowly meandering travels reflecting the way these three are pondering their own journeys. Veteran actress Geraldine Chaplin features as the mother of one of the women (played by actual daughter Oona Chaplin). You’ll fall in love with these well intentioned, smart, funny young people determined to live a little differently from the previous generation.
