This is an extract from Romola Garai's directorial debut Scrubber which I shot in the summer of 2011. The film which stars Amanda Hale and Steven Robertson had its UK premiere at the Edinburgh International Film Festival in 2012, where it was nominated for Best British Short.
'Boasting beautiful wintery photography by one-to-watch cinematographer Kate Reid and a commanding, chillingly naturalistic central performance from Amanda Hale, the film presents Garai as a remarkable directorial talent who clearly has a firm grasp of what cinema is and what it can be used for.' - David Jenkins, Little White Lies, November, 2012
