In ANCHOR AND HOPE Carlos Marques-Marcet explores the nuances that both keep relationships together and tear them apart. Set against the charming backdrop of London’s canals with a delightful soundtrack, the young Eva (Oona Chaplin from GAME OF THRONES) and Kat (Natalia Tena from HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS) seem to live a carefree and idyllic life. After a funeral for their cat, overseen by Eva’s bohemian mother Germaine (played by the incomparable Geraldine Chaplin), Eva suddenly decides that a baby is the perfect anchor for their nomadic life. Kat is visibly reluctant about the commitment and lifestyle change, and Eva’s plans seem to accelerate with the arrival of Kat’s friend Roger.
After a drunken night together, Kat wakes up to a hangover and the news of Roger and Eva’s plans to have a child together. The trio’s attempt at unconventional family-making reveals unspoken tensions as Roger and Eva’s enthusiasm leaves Kat on the sidelines. This fissure and the exposure of their true feelings tears Ava and Kat apart. Marques-Marcet’s feature strives to eschew both the predictability of rom-coms and a narrow minded view of what families look like in the 21st century. Ultimately, this film offers hope for the unconventional family of three.
