Adult Life Skills

Jodi Whittaker (brilliant as usual, obviously) plays Anna, approaching thirty, caught somewhere between childhood and adulthood, stuck living in her mum’s shed. But this is so much more than a man child narrative with a gender swap. Rachel Tunnard’s film is a smart, funny, and occasionally heart-breaking masterpiece. There is a deep seam of sadness running through Adult Life Skills which heightens the comedy. At the start of the film, Anna is hiding from her past as much as she is her future. She isn’t trying to put off growing up, she is drifting and lost.
