Movie Info

After a recent break-up, Alma tries to get her life back on track. But with no job, no qualifications and a rebellious streak a mile wide, it is not going to be easy. Meanwhile, her heroin-addicted mum has been sectioned for arson, and her vampish grandma Joan wants nothing to do with it. A bitingly funny and unflinching take on class, sexuality, mental health and substance abuse, celebrating women dealing with the hand they were dealt while doggedly pursing their dreams.

Critic Reviews for Alma's Not Normal

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

It sounds grim, but this is written and performed with such heart, such tenderness and such an eye for what is true, you'll be entranced by it.

You could shove a few more care workers and therapists into this and add a hand-wringing voice-over, and you'd have a rugged social documentary.
