You’re Ugly Too

Aidan Gillen, better known as Petyr Baelish in GAME OF THRONES, plays Will, a man in his mid-30’s who was released from prison so he can take care of his 11 year old niece Stacey (Lauren Kinsella), in this well-observed and likable film. She isn’t so happy with the idea. She doesn’t trust the uncle that she hasn’t seen for so long and whose reasons for being in jail are unknown. Will’s rickety car and the new location, a trailer park in the middle of the Midlands, the most barren and poor area of the island, don’t exactly help build trust. Will is trying his best while Stacey barricades herself behind a wall of constant antagonism and detached banter. They are constantly at each other’s throats and have biting exchanges. It’s clear, however, that the two could like each other. They share the same sense of humor, at least. Director Mark Noonan gives his protagonists time to discover the expansive nowhereland for themselves. Problems are not gleamed over and false solutions are not forced. Stacey’s grief over her recently deceased mother is always present and Will can’t manage to get a job which leads him to raid Stacey’s narcolepsy pills one evening. But it doesn’t get too sad. Like the moors shot to look like something between a wasteland and an idyll, Will and Stacey’s mood is sober with some sunny moments.
