Shell (2012)

Directed by
Scott Graham

Scott Graham's debut feature is a coming-of-age drama about a 17-year-old woman who lives with her father at a remote petrol station in the Scottish Highlands. Their austere, isolated lives are compellingly captured via Yoliswa Gärtigand's cinematography, while the narrative centres on the relationship between father and daughter. The story is set in the mid-1980s, some years after Shell's mother left them, and their lives can be claustrophobically lonely; there are times during the winter when they see just one customer a week. And this isolation results in some troubling undercurrents and tensions between the two protagonists. Michael Smiley and Iain De Caestecker play two of the petrol station's few customers.
