The List film, produced in association with Screen Academy Scotland at Edinburgh Napier University, transforms the intimacy of live theatre directly onto the big screen.
I keep a tight list. Very detailed. I stick to it.
Even more so since she died.
But I’m having trouble.
“Maureen Beattie [gives a] mesmerising and thrillingly unforgiving performance as a woman who cannot forgive herself.” Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
Set in Québec, The List is an award winning story of a woman struggling to adjust to rural life. Increasingly isolated, she keeps life in order through obsessive list making. As her marriage struggles she befriends Caroline. When Caroline requests a favour she adds it to her list. The difference between remembering to do it, and neglecting to take it seriously, becomes the difference between life and death.
