EIFF 2016: ‘Adult Life Skills’ ★★★

Grief is not uncommon thematic ground for the cinema. Making sense of loss, the void to be filled and one’s individual reaction to bereavement is a tale as old as time. From a wealth of experience in the editing room, writer-director Rachel Tunnard steps behind the camera with debut feature Adult Life Skills. It is a kooky, touching, continually droll comedy drama that treads simultaneously familiar and unusual ground in its exploration of grieving for a sibling, more specifically a twin.

Adult Life Skills made its European Premiere at EIFF 2016, is playing at the East End Film Festival and in UK cinemas 24th June! Read the full CineVue review here.
