Ray & Liz
KimStim • 1h 49m
Directed by Richard Billingham • Drama • With Patrick Romer, Richard Ashton, Justin Salinger • 2018 • 107 minutes
On the outskirts of Birmingham and the margins of society, the Billingham family perform extreme rituals and break social taboos as they muddle through a life decided by factors beyond their control. At times shocking and laced with unsettling humor, three episodes unfold as a powerful evocation of the experience of growing up in a Black Country council flat. Directed by the Turner Prize-nominated artist Richard Billingham.
“An intensely observed narrative feature that draws deeply from Billingham’s previous work.” —Hollywood Reporter
“Ray & Liz is formally arresting and rigorous, though not at the expense of its direct emotional force.”—Variety
