Holiday (18)

A stunning and captivating debut feature from Isabella Eklöf

Sasha (Victoria Carmen Sonne), the trophy girlfriend of drug kingpin Michael (Lai Yde), joins his 'family' on the Turkish Riviera for a holiday. Sasha's relationship with Michael is abusive and disturbing, a constant power-play and struggle for dominance.

This thriller raises important questions about consent, control and objectification within relationships. Don't let the beautiful veneer of sun, sea and sand fool you, Holiday has a rippling undertone that is ice-cold and ugly.
