Last Resort

Directed by Pawel Pawlikowski

Tanya (Korzun) leaves Moscow with her street-wise son Artiom for a new life in England with her fiancé. When he doesn’t come to meet them Tanya becomes a reluctant refugee, and she and her son are confined to a holding area in dingy seaside resort Stonehaven. There they encounter the ‘locals’, from fellow asylum seekers to an internet porn purveyor and the amusement arcade worker Alfie (Considine) who becomes her friend, and more. Tanya becomes desperate to return to Russia with her son. But without passport, money and rights, escape from this nightmarish no-hope land seems impossible.
