Written and directed by Matthew J. Saville (Hitch Hike, Dive), Juniper is Saville’s debut feature film starring Academy Award nominee Charlotte Rampling, Márton Csókás and newcomer George Ferrier.
Sam (17) has been on a self-destructive spiral that could lead to his death. He returns home from boarding school to find his wheelchair-bound English grandmother, Ruth, has moved in. Ruth is an ex-war photographer with a lust for life and a love of the bottle.
