Last Resort

Tanya (Korzun) and son Artiom (Strelnikov) arrive at Stansted airport from Moscow but don't get past immigration. Her fiancé never shows. She claims political asylum. The pair are dumped in Stonehaven (aka Margate) in midwinter, where they are expected to subsist on vouchers until their case can be considered. But the desolation of this grey open prison (Britain is made to look like the old Eastern Bloc) is not allowed to overshadow a tentative, tender courtship between Tanya and a sympathetic local bingo caller Alfie (Considine). Compassion, it seems, tempers the Polish-born director's fiery conviction.
