Spider & Rose
Bill Bennett's disarming, witty and genuinely touching generation-gap road movie is buoyed by a tart screenplay and stylish direction.

After a long stay in hospital, the feisty, acerbic Rose (Ruth Cracknell) leaves to return to her family farm. Her ambulance driver, Spider (Simon Bossell), is an anti-social youth who's furious to be forced to spend his last day on the job driving an old biddy cross country.
