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.

“Maureen Beattie is superb…” The Scotsman
