Abstract:
Directed by Duane Hopkins and produced by Samm Haillay, Better Things is a multi narrative drama depicting everyday life in small town England. We follow several characters dealing in their own particular way with their relationships. As a day dawns in the Cotswolds a funeral is taking place that will have bitter repercussions for some of the community. Close by Rachel and Larry are reeling against a first love gone wrong. Meanwhile Mr Gladwin refuses to speak to Mrs Gladwin over events of a long time ago. Following on from his multi award winning and critically acclaimed short film Duane Hopkins presents a painterly view of existence against a rarely seen rural backdrop and it’s separate generation’s approach to life, love, loss and intoxication.
