Anyone who asks themselves “Is this really it?” may well find some answers in Stephen Glover’s debut feature. Or maybe not. George is 33, an out of work actor, and his greatest achievement to date is appearing alongside a troll in a Wine Gums advert. Living back at home with his parents, life seems to mostly involve looking for work and being patronised by his family and friends. But when he runs into an old flame, he’s driven to seek out love and creative expression. Reminiscent of the comedic existential soul-searching of Lena Dunham’s Girls combined with a very British slice of absurdism, Making It is an utterly charming comedy about being yourself, and finding a pencil sharpener.
Followed by a Q&A. Tickets available on the Picturehouse website here.
