Dreams Of A Life

3

A poignant true story

The achingly sad story of a young woman who lay dead in her north London flat for three years without anyone missing her underpins Carol Morley’s documentary.

The director embarks on a poignant mission to piece together the scant details of Joyce Vincent’s brief life, exploring the mystery of her unexplained passing.

Sombre talking head interviews, a wealth of research and dramatic reconstructions – the latter featuring Zawe Ashton (Blitz, Fresh Meat) – inform a moving plea for us all to be better neighbours, in a bleak yet strangely heartening film.
