UK Premiere: Two Irenes (15*)

Chronic Youth Film Festival 2019

Two women on a cliff

The UK premiere of Fabio Meira’s refreshing coming-of-age drama, centred on the inception of an odd friendship between two girls and complex family dynamics.

In shimmering heat of Brazil, we follow 13-year-old Irene as she befriends another girl named Irene who is, in her eyes, the perfect version of herself.

Discovery of a secret her father been hiding leads her down a path of emotional unravelling, gently wading through adolescent anxieties around sexuality, identity and the meaning of family.

An enchanting and heart-warming ode to early adolescence masterfully enacted by the young protagonists’ lead performances.
