Description

The remarkable Jodie Comer (\"Killing Eve\", THE LAST DUEL) stars, and early on she's pregnant in a bathtub as flash flooding hits the area of London where she lives. The heavy rain blends into childbirth with visual excellence from director Belo, cinematographer Suzie Lavelle, and editor Arttu Salmi. Fortunately, this does not turn into one of those heavy-CGI apocalyptic films, and instead stays grounded, and thanks to Comer's superb talent, becomes a story focused on the strength inspired by motherhood. It's a very human story derived from an environmental catastrophe.
