THE BALL (2010)
Producer: Magnus Dennison
Director: Katja Roberts
Lonely misfit Amy Jones has noticed a new boy in her street. While playing football alone in the back lane she catches his attention and he begins to reach out to her in his own quirky way. However, Jack's world is complicated and after a promising start he seems to withdraw from her. It's only when Amy desperately needs help that Jack is forced to face his greatest fear and reveal the truth behind his mysterious behaviour. 'The Ball' portrays the tender beginnings of a burgeoning childhood friendship in which communication takes on touching, funny and inventive forms.
