Event Description

On returning home from boarding school, a self-destructive teenager, Sam, discovers that his gin-soaked, wheelchair-bound English grandmother, Ruth, played by Oscar nominee Charlotte Rampling (45 Years, Hanna), has moved in. Their first meeting is awkward. Their second, violent, as Sam is depended upon to care for her. But the person he meets is far from what he expected, she’s funny, rude, fearless, sharp-tongued, flirtatious, ex-war photographer who can drink him and his friends under the table. Both Sam and Ruth are contemplating the end of their lives, one through suicidal plans and the other through age, while questioning the point of their own existences. A stubborn fight for will and recognition ensues. What follows is an unexpected and poignant story of friendship and care that transcends the boundaries of generations.

Juniper is a poignant intergenerational drama about two misunderstood and forgotten individuals that come to see in each other what the rest of the world cannot—a shared spirit and fight—enabling Sam to embrace life again, and Ruth to face her mortality on her own terms.
