Co-produced by three UK companies including Film4, and directed by prolific and revered British filmmaker Ken Loach, Ladybird, Ladybird offers a compassionate view of its flawed but struggling protagonist. First-time British actor and former barmaid Crissy Rock gives a breathtaking performance as Maggie, with a formidably incisive script crafted by Scotland-born screenwriter Rona Munro.





This raw and uncompromising drama follows the turbulent life of Maggie (Crissy Rock) who, trapped in a hopelessly vicious cycle of abuse and poverty, loses four of her children to social services. After meeting the kind-hearted Paraguayan refugee Jorge (Vladimir Vega) who offers the promise of greater stability, the couple fight to keep their baby after Maggie becomes pregnant again.
