Dirty God

Dutch filmmaker Sacha Polak makes her English-language debut with an unflinching London-set drama about the resilience of an acid attack survivor. British newcomer Vicky Knight is a grounded and gifted screen presence, and despite the heavy, immensely poignant subject matter, Dirty God ripples with humour and humanity.
