Sweetheart Rated 15


Dir. Marley Morrison. UK, 2021. 1h 43m. Starring Nell Barlow, Ella-Rae Smith, Jo Hartley, Sophia Di Martino, Samuel Anderson.

Socially awkward teenager AJ is dragged away by her painfully boring family on a caravanning holiday to the Dorset coast. Sure enough, AJ is at her wit's end, that is until she meets sun-loving lifeguard Isla and a holiday romance blossoms between the two. Winner of the Audience Award at the Glasgow Film Festival, Marley Morrison’s light-hearted debut captures the comedy and quirks of the quintessential British family holiday.

‘Sweetheart marks an authentic account of the murky, counterintuitive waters of the queer experience and eros in adolescence’ ★★★★ Marina Ashioti, Little White Lies
