British writer-director Deborah Haywood’s wry, provocative and much-praised feature debut Pin Cushion tells the story of a wickedly unique mother-daughter duo. Iona (rising star Lily Newmark) moves to a Midlands town with her eccentric mum Lyn (Joanna Scanlan). They’re looking for a fresh start, but as Iona longs for a life beyond the confines of their home, the eccentric fantasy world they’ve built for themselves starts to crumble. Casting a keen eye on the complex relationships between women, this deliciously dark and distinctive British debut fuses a dreamlike, fairytale feel with shards of something much sharper and more troubling.
