Time Out says
a London-based method-acting teacher. Seven non-actors, each with issues of varying complexity, answer an advert and join a cathartic workshop with Rumbelow to explore themselves through acting. What we witness is raw and uncomfortable as Rumbelow pushes them to reveal themselves. Five appear in short films: one deals with father issues by playing Cordelia in an extract from ‘King Lear’; another reflects relationship fears in a 1940s-set piece about courtship. Documentary segues into drama, and the film is a lucid précis of a project of great emotional intensity.
