Funny Cow 15

Director: Adrian Shergold
Cast: Maxine Peake, Paddy Considine

Country: UK
Year: 2017
Duration: 103m
Maxine Peake gives a formidable performance as an aspiring female comedian standing up to a violent husband and the sexist Northern England club circuit in the 70s and 80s. More of a film about the power of laughter and how to transform pain into humour than a straight-up comedy, FUNNY COW is a fitting showcase for Peake. So often dazzling on stage and television, she’s hilarious and heartbreaking here. - BFI London Film Festival

"FUNNY COW is powered by a crackling anger and a forceful performance from Maxine Peake." - Screen International
