Carol Morley

Dreams of a Life

(2011, UK, cert 12a, 90 minutes)

Dir: Carol Morley. With Zawe Ashton, Jonathan
Harden, Daren Elliot Holmes

Nobody noticed when Joyce Carol Vincent died in her bedsit above a shopping mall in North London in 2003. Her body wasn’t discovered for three years, surrounded by Christmas presents she had been wrapping and with the TV still on.

Newspaper reports offered few details of her life, not even a photograph. Carol Morley’s moving documentary drama interweaves interviews with imagined scenes from Joyce’s life in a powerful portrait not only of Joyce, but of urban living, how little we may ever know each other and how much we can love.
