My Absolute Darling
Turtle is a 14-year old girl living with her dad (mum deceased) in poverty in a rural California backwater. Struggling at school, abused by her father and socially peculiar she struggles to make sense of why her home life seems so different to others. Her father, however, has taught her to shoot, with great accuracy and discipline. A skill that comes in useful...
Pretty compelling, although shockingly grim in places.
