Anchor and Hope
A lesbian couple contemplate parenthood, family and love in this heartfelt, free-wheeling comic drama, set aboard a dreamy houseboat on a London canal.
Eva and Kat live a fairy tale life filled with love, laughter and very little money, until the death of Chorizo, their beloved cat, leaves a certain shaped gap in their life. Eva would like to fill it with a child and start a family. Kat just wants another cat. But when a drunken evening with the gregarious and life-long friend Roger leads Kat to reconsider her desire to create a family, the perfect sperm donor could be right before the two.
Boasting delightful performances from its central cast, Natalia Tena, David Verdaguer, and real-life mother and daughter Oona and Geraldine Chaplin (SWIFF celebrates Charlie’s 130th birthday this year!), alongside a charming trip down Regents Canal, a symbol for the films exploration of change, freedom and reflection.
