"The More You Ignore Me" is both a poignant and darkly funny coming-of-age story of dysfunctional family life in 1980's rural England: Gina (Sheridan Smith) whose efforts to be a loving mother and wife are undermined by her declining mental health and her growing obsession with the local weatherman and Alice (Ella Hunt) her daughter, who struggles to relate to her mum.
A sweet and sour film on mental illness (just madness). Very original. It is never what you expect next. The characters are endearing and very annoying. Is madness wanting to find happiness at any cost? To have a monstrous selfishness? The answer is in a film, not in the wind.

- The More You Ignore Me review by JF
This is a pretty unusual film. Kind of laid back, sad and funny in almost equal parts. Unexpected too, when the mentally unstable mum meets up with a new man, who is totally able to confront that she has problems - and yet still wants to be with her. Lovely writing, lovely acting and a great backdrop of a most depressing rural slum house. Really enjoyed it.
