Loving Lorna

Trailer for Loving Lorna.

A young redhead rides her horse along the green lawns and grey housing complexes of an impoverished Irish suburb. This unusual vision strikes the viewer as almost surreal, but in Ballymun, outside Dublin, horses have been an important part of the community’s culture for generations. For 17-year-old Lorna and her family, caring for horses is a way to stay out of trouble, giving purpose and joy to a life seemingly predetermined by their harsh socioeconomic reality. Proud and strong-willed, Lorna has long set her heart on becoming a farrier, a traditionally male job. But her constant back pain threatens to thwart her dreams. Shot over her last summer holiday from school, the film follows the young girl as she trains at the stable or rides her beloved and faithful Bigfoot. Loving Lorna is a tender and lucid coming-of-age story, in the best tradition of British social realism. Loving Lorna Trailer (2017) Screen CaptureTrailer Addict has setup TA, Trailers Anonymous.
