Borrowed Time [Ginevra Gentili, UK, 2022]

As young Olivia arrives home to reunite with her mother, it is immediately made clear that the pair are not as close as they perhaps should be. The pair journey onwards to Olivia’s grandmother’s house, where a painful experience leaves her both devastated and matured. Borrowed Time encapsulates the importance of family and how one moment can define the lives of many.

Olivia (played by Olivia Clarke) re-joins her family to be present at an important, if upsetting, moment. An illness in the family leads them back to the family matriarch’s home for some sombre reflection and time together. The road ahead is, quite literally, a bumpy one but the pair make it back to the picturesque setting, aware that very little happiness awaits them.
