The Arbor (2010)

Directed by: Clio Barnard
Country: UK

Plot: Portrayal of the late Bradford playwright Andrea Dunbar and family.
Quick comment: Heavy documentary based on a mournful story, which sometimes becomes difficult to watch. Motherhood is the topic. The life of British playwright Andrea Dunbar and her daughter Lorraine were analyzed. Some theatrical road scenes were added to recreate Andrea's writings. Even taking this in consideration, the power of words was enough to keep our interest focused on this true and shocking story.
Relevant awards: best documentary (Tribeca); best british newcomer director (London).
