About Typist Pirate Artist King

Carol Morley returns with a wonderfully imaginative insight into the life of Audrey Amiss, an artist only properly recognised after her death. Anchored by another terrific performance from the brilliant Monica Dolan, the film follows Audrey and her mental health carer Sandra (Kelly Macdonald) on a road trip to Sunderland.

Revisiting key places from her life, it becomes a funny, poignant journey of sweet liberation, feisty confrontation and a reckoning with the past that’s illustrated with Audrey’s artwork and set to a wide-ranging soundtrack which includes Boy George and Blondie.
