The Arbor (UK, 2011, Director Clio Barnard, 1 hr 34 mins, Cert15)
Documentary, biography , Drama.
Portrayal of the late Bradford playwright Andrea Dunbar.
From IMDB: The Arbor' of the title refers to a street called the 'Brafferton Arbor' on the Buttershaw estate in the city of Bradford, West Yorkshire, England. The people who lived there back in the 1980's were not rich, but one of them, Andrea Dunbar, became well known as a playwright. A lot of her work was biographical and this film tells us about her and about her oldest daughter, Lorraine, both through her work and by the use of actors lip-syncing to the voices of her friends and family.
