Seeking a fresh start, socially awkward Iona (Lily Newmark) and cat-obsessed mum Lyn (Joanna Scanlan) move to a new town. The pair put on a brave face, finding and creating comfort as one another's sole friend. However, life begins to get tricky after the town's small-minded denizens reveal themselves to be as petty and cruel as those from the town they just fled. Daughter and mother find refuge in an elaborate fantasy world founded on denial and delusion; ultimately putting distance between them when they need each other most.

Great indy cinema - Pin Cushion review by Koppert79

Spoiler Alert

There is a great sub genre in American indy cinema with films like Welcome to the Dollhouse which is quirky, unique and the right side of weird. Now the UK can match them. This is incredible

Really enjoyed - Pin Cushion review by LH

Spoiler Alert

Good little British film. Would recommend a watch. Quite entertaining. Some low budget British films can just feel cheap. This was a good one though.

A bold, compelling, gut-crunching and moving independent English film - Pin Cushion review by IF

Spoiler Alert

This is such a bold, compelling, gut-crunching and moving independent English film, which is even more exciting given that it's from a female writer and director. 'Pin Cushion' is Deborah Haywood eye-catching first feature length outing and bodes extremely well for the future.

Not surprisingly, a film about bullying (of both children and adults), proves to be a tough watch, and it certainly does make for some disturbing and uncomfortable viewing, increasingly so as the story develops, though there are moments of black comedy that help lighten the load just a little.

There are terrific performances from the whole cast, but in particular the mother and daughter double act provided by Joanna Scanlan and Lily Newmark stands out, whilst the art direction, costume design and soundtrack are all terrific. There are touches of 'Carrie' and 'Heavenly Creatures' within the plot and the tone of the film, but Haywood has drawn most from her own experiences, and has created an impressive and unique vision in the process.
