Anchor and Hope
Directed by CARLOS MARQUES-MARCET
Eva (Oona Chaplin, GAME OF THRONES; BLACK MIRROR) and Kat (Natalia Tena, HARRY POTTER’S Nymphadora Tonks) live a carefree lifestyle aboard their London canal boat until Eva presents Kat with an ultimatum: she wants a child. Kat resists, knowing that it will end their bohemian existence, but when her best friend Roger (David Verdaguer) visits from Barcelona and offers to be the sperm donor, the three independent spirits decide to go for a more traditional life. As Eva revels in her pregnancy and Roger fantasizes about his role in this new family, Kat feels like a third wheel, and suddenly what was meant to enrich their lives threatens to pull them apart. This amicable, eccentric romantic drama features a wonderful supporting performance from acting legend Geraldine Chaplin (Oona’s real life mother) as Eva’s no-nonsense mom.
