Film Series: Morvern Callar

2002. UK. Dir: Lynne Ramsay. With Samantha Morton. 97 min.

A supermarket clerk wakes up Christmas morning to find her boyfriend has committed suicide, leaving behind a completed manuscript for a novel. Morton’s captivating and deeply enigmatic performance (along with a great soundtrack featuring Boards of Canada, Aphex Twin, and Velvet Underground) anchors a pictorial, strange, yet evocative study of loss.
