Dir. Jane Gull. 2016, 83 mins. United Kingdom. Narrative. Digital projection. A sudden bereavement throws Luke, a fiercely independent young man with Down syndrome, into a group home—a daunting new environment where he finds unexpected support from his feisty, streetwise caretaker and a local heir dealing with his own demons. As friendships bloom, Luke’s frustration and disappointment with his new home soon turns to wonder when he discovers a way out and begins to explore the surrounding countryside. But as long-buried secrets are revealed, Luke treads dangerously close to disaster. My Feral Heart is a beautifully realized narrative, bolstered by strong performances, distinctive cinematography, and a deeply evocative score.
