Make Up

Swimming in mesmerising, starkly-composed visuals, where the Cornish seascapes are as stirring as they are frightening, this is a coming-of-age story given new depths by British writer-director Claire Oakley’s genre-bending storytelling. Punctuated by chilling sound design and an otherworldly atmosphere, Make Up is a potent piece of cinema, with a capital C.





Teenager Ruth is staying at a deserted seaside holiday park with her boyfriend Tom when she finds evidence that he might be cheating on her. As the desire to discover the truth descends into obsession, Ruth realises she might be looking for something else entirely.
