Fifteen-year-old Sarah is the sole carer for her sick mother and her twin siblings. She rushes from school to home to work in her efforts to keep the family going. Jellyfish tells the story of Sarah’s discovery of an unexpected outlet for her frustration and quick-tempered wit: stand-up comedy.
Local screenwriter Simon Lord introduces and answers your questions about this film, which was co-written with director James Gardner. It paints an unsentimental picture of life in a typical British seaside town. Newcomer Liv Hill’s fiercely evocative and vulnerable depiction of Sarah gives us a remarkable insight into a young woman living a life far beyond her years.
