Director Phyllida Lloyd's acclaimed film comes to UK/ROI cinemas in October.

One of the most hyped movies to premiere at this year's Sundance Film Festival was director Phyllida Lloyd's Herself. The Dublin set film stars Clare Dunne, who co-wrote the script, as Sandra, a young mother who finds herself homeless after leaving her abusive husband. Determined to put a roof over her young daughters' heads, Sandra embarks on a quest to build a home for the minimal amount of money. Harriet Walter, Conleth Hill and Cathy Belton also star.

Following its UK premiere at the London Film Festival on October 8th, Herself will open in UK/ROI cinemas October 16th.

The official synopsis reads:

HERSELF follows the story of Sandra (Clare Dunne), who on the surface of it, is a young Mum struggling to provide her two young daughters with a warm, safe, happy home to grow up in. Beneath the surface, Sandra has a steely determination to change their lives for the better and when it becomes clear that there are no other options left to her, she decides to build it herself from scratch, drawing together a community of friends to support her.
