It's Over (2018)
It's Over (2018), by the Cally Collective.
Two couples, old university friends, meet for a birthday dinner in an upmarket restaurant. The birthday girl Anna is an obnoxious loudmouth who spends the meal criticising the food, her husband, her old uni friends and the wine she quaffs at an alarming rate. Her friends Chris and Olivia do everything to placate her while her husband Alex tries his best to enjoy the meal. After she pushes him too far Alex breaks he starts stuffing his face with meat - he gets food all over him, his clothes, his face - and Anna loses it.

The Cally Collective are a new film collective which in many ways sums up the modern UK and London – a culturally diverse group of individuals brought together by a love of film and creativity. We first met in December 2017. Since that time, operating from our basement HQ on Caledonian Road we have planned and executed several different projects.
