Poppy (2021)

A young woman with Down syndrome chases her dream of becoming a mechanic, despite being held back by the person she trusts the most.

Poppy's ambition to become a motor mechanic – starting with the apprenticeship promised by her late father – is stalled by her super protective brother who has reluctantly inherited the family workshop/garage business. And it’s not until she teams up with an ex-school friend who needs his car fixed in time to enter the local burnout competition that her plans progress.

The film benefits enormously from the casting of Libby Hunsdale. Like Poppy, Libby’s a firecracker with a remarkable range, beautifully guided by director and writer Linda Niccol.
