“A postmodern, 21st-century version of Polanski’s classic Repulsion.”
The Guardian, Peter Bradshaw
MY FRIEND THE POLISH GIRL is a fiction film that takes the form of a first-time filmmaker’s documentary.
An American female documentarian sets out to make a film about immigrants in post-Brexit-vote London, but ends up intruding on the life of a struggling Polish actress. The award-winning British debut feature, MY FRIEND THE POLISH GIRL, takes you to the dark side of sexuality, friendship and unethical filmmaking.
“At a time when we have all become documentarians – taking photos of our #lunch for Instagram, giggling for Snapchat and grinning for YouTube – this is a film which reminds us that sometimes it is best to let reality simply ‘be’.”
