Unconditional
Filmfest 2012

Teenage twins Kristen and Owen are misfits in the real world, bored of caring for their mum and fantasizing about murdering her. Then along comes Liam: tough, charming, full velocity, genuinely cool. Kristen fancies him with the intensity of someone in a fairytale. But Liam takes Owen out drinking – and the depth of Liam’s mis-wired obsessions soon emerges. Liam offers unconditional love to Owen – on one condition: Owen must take his sister’s identity, become a new “Kristen”. And Owen must be exorcised from himself. Liam veers between object of adoration and menace until, after a bitter-sweet meeting with his parents that gets to the heart of Liam’s troubles, Owen tries to escape. Trapped in Liam’s hurtling car, they head for the North Sea and a surreal, frightening climax.
