Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

Quite hard hitting film that left people wondering whether it was despairing or hopeful... so provoked interesting discussions

A difficult film to show in a Village Hall setting as it covers a lot of challenging issues and left our audience with a lot to think about. Most people left in a positive frame of mind. "Thought provoking, a film that lived up to its title. The three flat mates were all 'In Between' different issues in their lives - relationships, religion, modern and traditional values. It was sensitively filmed." No problem with sub-titles though.

Initiated a lot of post film conversations. Vibrant film, three women caught between extremes, the drugs and parties and the repression, trying to be independent and fulfilled, up against the wall of traditions and hypocrisies. A slice of life not seen. Response from audience seemed mostly positive. One left half way. Just need audience to be aware that there’s a high level of hard partying/ swearing and sexual violence in one scene but not gratuitous.
