An inspiring and hopeful tale about rebuilding a life. ” Next Best Picture
HERSELF tells the story of Sandra, a young mother who seeks to rebuild her life from scratch, and provide a safe home for her two young daughters. In order to do so, she must escape the grip of a possessive ex-partner, circumnavigate a broken housing system, and bring together a community of friends who can support her and lend a helping hand.
HERSELF is led by acclaimed director Phyllida Lloyd (Mamma Mia!, The Iron Lady) and emerging Irish actor Clare Dunne, who plays Sandra, and is widely known for her theatre work, including Lloyd’s all-female stage version of Shakespeare’s Henry IV.
