How much drama can one guesthouse see? Nick, the owner, has a large debt hanging over him. His wife, Elizabeth, is suffering from early dementia and hence behaves very inappropriately. Sheila Atim shines as their adopted daughter, Marianne, is pregnant but is closely guarding the identify of the baby’s father. Then a bible selling preacher and a boxer on the run show up bringing even more drama with them. Despite the interesting story the directing felt a little lacking to me. Characters just happened to be musicians who who randomly picked up a mic or grouped together to start singing. I wasn’t very familiar with Bob Dylan’s songs so wasn’t sure what to expect form the music but enjoyed the intertwining with the storyline.
Girl From the North County has now finished.
