Ali & Ava‘s tender, naturalistic love story adds another powerful chapter to writer-director Clio Barnard’s filmography. Both lonely for different reasons, Ali and Ava meet through their shared affection for Sofia, the 6 year old child of Ali’s Slovakian tenants, whom Ava teaches. Ali finds comfort in Ava’s warmth and kindness and Ava finds Ali’s complexity and humour irresistible. Over a lunar month, sparks fly and a deep connection begins to grow. However, the legacy of Ava’s past relationship and Ali’s emotional turmoil at the breakdown of his marriage begins to overshadow their newfound passion.
