  • Directed by: Alice Lowe
  • Cast: Alice Lowe, Kayvan Novak, Gemma Whelan, Kate Dickie

Ruth (Lowe) is an expectant mother who starts to hear her unborn baby urging her to kill people. Lowe's blackly comic, squirmingly uncomfortable directorial debut is remarkably well-realised, with an impressive cast and her own eerily passive, brilliantly-timed performance at the core. Enjoyably provocative.
