Starring: Josie Lawrence, Tanya Myers, Anna Mottram

Director: Jon Sanders

Sisters and performance artists Phoebe and Dot (Josie Lawrence and Tanya Myers) have returned to their family home on the Isle of Wight a year after the death of their composer mother. They start preparing the house for its sale, clearing decades of family clutter. They go through her things, discover long lost childhood toys, find (and sing) songs that she wrote, plan to put together a performance piece about her life…and in doing so, they try to unravel the many mysteries of their much-missed mother. A woman who seemed happy on the surface…but would often burst into tears for no apparent reason. A woman who was in love with her husband…but had a never-ending series of affairs.

Josie Lawrence and Tanya Myers are sublime as the sisters. Anna Mottram gives a beautiful, wistful performance as a family friend who has come to assist them. A Clever Woman is a small heartfelt British drama which is unafraid to ask some big questions.
