What’s on at the cinema: Light of My Life

Written and Directed by: Casey Affleck  Starring: Anna Pniowsky, Casey Affleck, Tom Bower, Elisabeth Moss

In the desperate atmosphere of a post-pandemic, dystopian landscape following a plague that killed nearly all the world’s females, a father and daughter survive on rations in American Midwestern towns while they forage in the woods, far from the danger men present. Protecting 11-year-old Rag (Anna Pniowsky) is the main concern of her loving Dad (Oscar winner Casey Affleck). He shows the young girl how to live off the land, teaches her about ethics and history, memory and morality — all while honouring and empowering the young woman she is becoming and reminding her of how much her Mom (Elisabeth Moss) adored her. But then a chance encounter threatens the precautions Dad and Rag have set up, risking the refuge this parent and child have created in a world thrown perilously, hauntingly out of balance.
     Light of My Life releases in selected cinemas on 18 October 2019.
