My Name is Emily

On Ireland's misty coast, Emily (Evanna Lynch, Harry Potter series) is flung into foster care after her father is institutionalised. She prepares a daring escape.

"Starting at a new school, Emily is labelled a loner and a freak by her classmates, but she catches the attention of shy Arden (George Webster). When her father (Michael Smiley) forgets to send a card on her 16th birthday, Emily enlists Arden and his canary yellow hatchback to help break her father out of the psychiatric hospital. As they grow to depend on each other, Emily and Arden learn about life, love, loss and letting go." (Sydney Film Festival)

My Name Is Emily gets lighter as it goes along, releasing tension and pretension for a pleasant, routine ride.

"My Name is Emily" believes firmly and vigourously in life's hidden joys and our ability to rearrange our thinking to accept it, but its own preciousness proves too steep an obstacle.

My Name Is Emily is in many respects an average and in several respects a kind of clichéd and frayed coming-of-age movie.

Evanna Lynch shines in this whimsical road trip film that has a compelling backstory.
