May 15, 2012

Original drama Care, directed by Amanda Boyle will play on Sky Arts 1 on Thursday 17th May at 9pm.

As part of the Playhouse series on the channel, Care stars Gina McKee as Natalie; a district nurse in the Byker estate of Newcastle who is drawn into the lives of two very different women - Elsie, an elderly lady nearing the end of her life and Sammy, the young girl next door, who seemingly has everything to live for.

"a discordant, suspense-filled mood piece, starring the excellent Gina McKee." The Times

"strong, minimal and cleverly filmed piece that recalls Andrea Arnold's Bafta- winning Fish Tank." **** The Daily Mail

"The underplayed performances, a constant sense of impending menace, and...atmospheric direction." The Guardian

"atmospheric piece... McKee is more than up to the challenge" The Sunday Times

"This series of beautifully cast mini-plays continues with a disquieting drama about isolation and the boundaries of care." The Radio Times

"Quality drama" The Observer
