Cut from the same explicit, ironic, confessional cloth as Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s internationally successful BBC TV series Fleabag, Scottish filmmaker Peter Mackie Burns’s Daphne is a tightly focused, remarkably authentic and complex character study of a brittle 31-year-old Londoner, Daphne (an excellent Emily Beecham). Having ‘sort of given up on people’, she goes through the motions; working in a London restaurant by day, and through a series of drug-fuelled hook-ups by night. Resisting genuine intimacy in her friendships, it’s only when Daphne witnesses a violent incident and is thrown into chaos that she finally begins to confront the person she’s become.
