Product Description

Early 1970s – escaping grey London and a failed relationship, Julia takes her two daughters, Lucy and Bea, to Morocco in search of adventure. Lucy and Bea run free in the colour and life of Marrakech, but the city offers less freedom to a penniless mum seeking the meaning of life. Julia’s struggle is transformed by the charming Bilal who captivates them all. But her freedom has its price and she is forced to recognize what she has learnt about herself and her search for happiness. Starring internationally acclaimed actress Kate Winslet (Titanic, The Reader) and directed by award–winning Gillies MacKinnon.

From Amazon.co.uk

Hideous Kinky journeys back to the early 1970s to Marrakesh, that hippy mecca for everyone from Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix to Gillies MacKinnon, the director of this movie. Here you'll find one nice but confused middle-class young woman escaping the daily grind of a drab London with her two young daughters in tow. Whereas Esther Freud's book was told from the younger girl's perspective, the film-script places Julia centre-stage as she searches for what she describes wistfully as "the annihilation of the ego".

Though fresh from her Titanic experience, Kate Winslet is no drippy hippy, bringing a refreshing feistiness to her role and looking fetching swathed in diaphanous layers. As her two daughters, Bella Riza (Bea, the wide-eyed younger one) and Carrie Mullan (Lucy, the sensible one) are brilliant discoveries--unselfconscious, charmingly quirky and enjoying a camaraderie that belies their difference in characters. Completing the family unit is Julia's lover, the endearingly unreliable Bilal (a fiery performance from Saïd Taghmaoui). When the money runs out, their adventures begin and the resilience and practicality of the girls is contrasted throughout with the dreaminess of their mother, her sense of duty vying with her quest for self-discovery. Visually, it's a veritable feast as we're pitched from the colour and cacophony of the market-place to the dusty harshness of the mountains. And that elusive title--which is never explained in the film--is in fact a phrase coined by the girls as a term of approbation.--Harriet Smith
