Say My Name
This amusing screwball comedy, set on a picturesque island off the coast of southern Wales, is a fast-paced rom-com that twists and turns at a dizzying pace. A one-night stand turns into quite the bumpy ride for Mary (Lisa Brenner) and Statton (Nick Blood). She’s confident and clever. Him? Not so much. A botched robbery leads to mishaps and mayhem, forcing the accidental couple to work together to stay alive. Deborah Frances-White, a British-Australian comedian (of the Guilty Feminist podcast), penned the script, and it was directed by an American, Jay Stern.
UK 2018 (83 minutes)
