Nominated for the 2019 BAFTA award for Outstanding British Debut. Written and directed by former Jehovah's Witness Daniel Kokotajlo, 'Apostasy' is a powerful and authentic debut that offers a rare insight into the complex nature of faith, family, duty and love. As devout Jehovah's Witnesses, Alex and Luisa, along with their mother Ivanna, are united in the Truth. Alex looks up to her confident older sister, while striving to follow in Ivanna's footsteps as a ‘good witness'. But when Luisa starts to question the advice of the Elders, she makes a life-altering transgression that threatens her expulsion from the congregation. Unless Ivanna and Alex can persuade her to recant, they must shun her completely. The challenge becomes more trying when the family is faced with another test of faith. ★★★★ "Finneran gives a haunting, deeply affecting performance" - Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent ★★★★ "A supremely intelligent and gripping drama" - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian ★★★★ "A quietly brilliant work that balances the conflicts of three women, and the trio of actresses playing them give stunning performances" - Joseph Walsh, Time Out ★★★★★ "Calm and murderously watchable British drama" - Nigel Andrews, Financial Times
