Dir: Scott Graham




One of Screen International’s UK Stars of Tomorrow, Scottish director Scott Graham makes his feature debut with Shell; a truly exceptional coming-of-age drama that explores the relationship between a father and daughter in the remote Scottish Highlands.

Shell (Chloe Pirrie) runs an isolated petrol station with her father, Pete (Joseph Mawle). Aside from the few regulars who utilise their outpost (including the excellent Michael Smiley), Shell and Pete have almost no contact with the outside world and as such are mutually dependent on one another for basic human needs; needs that become increasingly disturbing and seemingly inescapable.

Graham and Cinematographer Yoliswa Gartig paint a haunting vision of life lived outside the boundaries of normal society that is given a vibrant beating heart by Chloe Pirrie in the title role.
