Veterinary student Rose decides to contact Ellen, the birth mother who gave her up for adoption. Ellen, a successful London-based actress, doesn’t want to know. Undeterred, Rose is led by her curiosity and discovers a series of revelations that shake the fragile identity she has built for herself.

Our take

Rose Plays Julie is an icy revenge thriller from the brilliant Irish filmmaking duo Christine Molloy and Joe Lawlor (Helen). With a tightly-coiled lead performance from Ann Skelly, this slippery exploration of doubling and identity offers a masterclass in contained suspense.
