The film focuses on 17-year-old Emelia (newcomer Jessica Brown Findlay), who bursts into the lives of the dysfunctional Fischer family when she is hired to work in their guest house in a sleepy town on the South Coast of England.
Beth Fischer (Felicity Jones) is cramming for her A-Levels, in a desperate bid to escape to University, whilst dad Jonathan (Sebastian Koch), once a best-selling author, is suffering from writer’s block much to the annoyance of frustrated mum Joa (Julia Ormond) who runs the guest house and laments the promising acting career she left behind.
Can Emelia and Beth escape the ties of small town existence and free themselves of the Albatrosses around their necks?
