I would watch this film, if you know what's good for you
Odd film, quirky, not sure odd is the right word. I'll just say it was up my street, Not that I'm odd. And I'm not sure it's everyone's bowl of soup, but I certainly recommend it.

A film that punches above its weight
I've always been a fan of films that aren't of the Hollywood variety and offers something different so when a friend with a keen eye for hidden gems recommended this one I took him up on his offer and I am glad I did. I don't want to give away too much in the way of spoilers, but I'll just say A Safe Place has an excellent cast of some very good actors, it's billed as a heist comedy and it is that but it's also a film that makes you think outside the box, keeps you guessing, and is informative in its depictions of mental health. Kevin, one of the leads, reminded me of a modern day Randall P. McMurphy of Cuckoo's Nest fame, and Earl and Teddy were like comic book characters I've never seen before, and I mean that in a good way. I'm going to stop. Just watch it, and enjoy.

Stylish indie caper
A Safe Place is a black comedy-drama about three people living in a home. We follow the escapades of Earl, Kevin and Teddy as their support workers struggle to keep up with their world. This unblinking portrait of England's modern care system could have made for heavy viewing, but the film's playful heist elements, stylish film noir tendencies and gentle upbeat vibe come together in a way which is funny, troubling and hopeful all at once. An atmospheric, intriguing and fun little indie film with a lot of heart.
