The Ballad of Jack and Rose
Jack is a father, living alone with his daughter on an island, away from the general population. Rose is Jack's daughter, a young girl who has not been to school since she was 11, and, when faced with people, has all the normal curiosities of a teenager. This is an interesting story of love and isolationism. It is touching and dramatic, in some ways, a little disturbing. The acting and writing are outstanding.
