#24 - Harry Wootliff - Only You (2018)

Play

Are things always as they appear? You might take one glance at Only You (2018) on Netflix and assume this is a cheesy romance film where the guy gets the girl at last minute in the airport. In fact, Benas did and we had to strap him to a chair and run some Clockwork Orange moves on his eyes so he would watch it. But we’re getting away from the point here. Harry Wootliff’s Only You is a raw, delicately crafted debut that might have slipped you by (despite winning two BIFAs). 

A curveball suggestion by Louis that sent the pod crew getting all emotional, in whats been our closest episode to an actual therapy session on relationships, the film follows Jake and Elena as their relationship blossoms, before tackling one of the most challenging obstacles anyone has to encounter. Harry Wootliff has not only written characters that reflect actual people you might know in real life, but has explored the subject of intimacy in a way that feels fresh and important. You might even hear Benas come round to a film about relationships. Imagine that. 

With no Sparrow this episode Dom, Louis and Benas pick up the slack, but rest assured, the Me and Earl-loving-currently-Malick-Obsessed-Film-Lover will be back next episode throwing out the usual gems.

Happy listening, enjoy.

Live in the last of our series of six episodes from HOME Manchester, Anna reviews a vintage year of stellar guests and compelling conversation for Girls On Film, and looks ahead at what 2020 has in store. With Sight & Sound's 50 films of the year topped by Joanna Hogg's The Souvenir, and initiatives from the F-Rating to Bumble's Female Film Force going from strength to strength, we're here to help drive the vanguard of female filmmaking into the new year.

We sit down with BIFA-winning and BAFTA-nominated director Harry Wootliff to discuss her strikingly intimate debut feature Only You. Joined too by Doctor Who screenwriter and playwright Joy Wilkinson, the panel discusses the challenges writer-directors still face in bringing complex women to the screen.

Clarisse Loughrey, chief film critic at The Independent, also joins Anna to review new releases Charlie's Angels, Judy & Punch, and Marriage Story as we approach awards season.

In a festive film twist, our three guests bring their picks of classic Christmas cinema to the table for scrutiny through a gendered lens ̶ from high-risers The Apartment and Die Hard, to the spiky Edward Scissorhands, via the yellow brick road of The Wizard Of Oz.

A big thank you to HOME Manchester for a wonderful six-episode partnership, to MUBI and Cameo Productions for their support in 2019, and to our house band, MX Tyrants.

Girls On Film is an HLA production, Exec produced by Hedda Archbold and audio produced by Jane Long.

ONLY YOU + THE DEAD DON'T DIE | feat. Josh O'Connor, Laia Costa & Harry Wootliff

Prince Charles himself, Josh O'Connor (God's Own Country) joins us on the show this week, as well as Victoria's Laia Costa and the director of their new film Only You, Harry Wootliff. Plus, we disassemble Jim Jarmusch's latest, zom-com The Dead Don’t Die.


Elena (Laia Costa) and Jake (Josh O'Connor) meet by chance one New Years Eve, arguing over the same taxi. Instead of going their separate ways after a shared ride, they begin a passionate relationship. Within weeks they are living together, and not long after they talk about starting a family. As the seasons pass, reality catches up with them. Falling in love was the easy part, but can they remain in love when life doesn’t give them everything they hoped for?


Jim Jarmusch resurrects the gang for his fresh take on the zombie comedy, The Dead Don’t Die. Bill Murray, Chloë Sevigny and Adam Driver are small town cops working their beat when nature turns on itself, the sun refuses to set and the dead rise from the grave. Putting aside chicken theft, they set out to get to the bottom of these strange ghouls, with the help of Tilda Swinton’s mortician (who’s handy with a samurai sword if needs be).


Discussing the film this week are Sam Howlett, Kelly Powell & Jake Cunningham

BAFTA-nominated filmmaker Harry Wootliff joins me on the podcast this week to discuss her transition from acting to writing and directing, the experience of showing her short film at Cannes and the rewards and challenge of directing her first feature - Only You - which will be released by Curzon in the summer.

We really dive into the writing process, from coming up with ideas, to writing good dialogue and what it means to be a visual storyteller. Definitely keep an eye out for the film (which stars Laia Costa and Josh O'Connor) when it hits UK cinemas!
