Adapted from Emma Jane Unsworth's novel; A funny, furious tale about two thirtysomething women whose hedonistic existence is placed in jeopardy that has been described as 'Withnail with girls'

Laura and Tyler are soulmates. Thirty-something best friends and revellers residing in Dublin, they are ingrained in the fabric of each other's lives; dating, partying, drinking and living their life without limitations. American ex-pat, Tyler -- a siren of drugs, alcohol and debauchery -- lures aspiring writer, Laura, away from her long overdue novel as well as her new beau, the irresistibly handsome Jim, a tee-total classical pianist

'Hyde has forged a wonderful, utterly lived-in film about two women at a crossroads, one that attendees should be breathlessly, excitedly discussing around town, urging everyone else to see immediately' - ★★★★ The Guardian

'Grainger is a revelation and Shawkat a rebel in this delightfully defiant celebration of women’s imperfections. Stick with them through the chaos and you’ll be rewarded with an utterly electric tale of female friendship.' - ★★★★ Empire
