Morvern Callar is the name of a lower-class Scottish lass who seems to be a heartless, tragic figure that you might have difficulty making a connection with. The critics liked this film because it very skillfully tells the story of individuals that are lost, seemingly worthless, reprehensible souls. I found it difficult to connect with any characters in this film. Callar is played by actress Samantha Morton, who was basically a UK TV actress when this theatrical release was made. I did not realize that Morton starred in a later film along with Jim Broadbent in the excellent TV film Longford. In that film, Morton and Broadbent won Golden Globes for best actors in a TV film drama. I remember that both blew me away with their acting abilities.

What to do with a dead boyfriend? If you're a proper female, you call the police, and submit his book manuscript for his posthumous glory. If you're a downtrodden, eery young person like Morvern Callar, you clean up the mess, submit his manuscript as your own, and go on a road trip of self-discovery. I might be in the minority here, but the main problem is lack of conflict -- because I don't think she did anything wrong. Dead is dead, and life goes on. The focus is not on the crime, or lack of crime, but Movern's evolution as a person. If you like, it's a girl's Breaking Bad.

Not even Samantha Morton could save this one. Not recommended.

Improbable, confusing, even maddening story, but interesting visual style.
