REVIEWS FOR HER RECENT SHORT FILM, ‘BEING LIONEL’.

‘I enjoyed it very much. Funny, human, clever, gentle and slightly dark! What an achievement’

CHRIS ECCLESTONE
ACTOR

‘Being Lionel was really good. It’s poignant, funny and doesn’t hang about - feels like a proper short.
And it was definitely right to go out on Lionel’s feet!’

DAVID BADDIEL
COMEDIAN AND WRITER

‘Really good - enjoyed it a lot - and I don’t generally like short films. Tap dancing end shot - perfect!’
