Ramsay more than fulfils the promise shown in her wonderful debut feature, Ratcatcher, in this tale of Morvern (Morton), a checkout girl whose would-be novelist boyfriend leaves her an unpublished book after his death. Morvern has ideas of her own, though, and with her friend Lanna (the excellent newcomer, McDermot) begins to gain astute insights into modern life. An assured, visually expressive adaptation of Alan Warner's 1995 cult novel, Morvern Callar is a story told through a succession of stunning images, with a masterful use of editing and sound design. This is the confident face of 21st century British cinema.
