Morvern Callar

Fortnight 2002, Feature film, 1h37

Synopsis

Morvern Callar is 21 and lives in a small port on the west coast of Scotland where she works in a supermarket. Morvern considers that you have to get by in life with what you have and accept what happens to you. One morning, she discovers what life has in store for her: her boyfriend is lying stone dead on the tile floor of the kitchen. He killed himself after leaving her a message on the computer, his credit card, and a floppy disk with the unpublished novel he’d just finished.
