  “A most wonderful little gem” - Luke Ryan Baldock, The Hollywood News

 Seph (Laura Carmichael) and Alex (Chloe Pirrie) attend the funeral of their close friend Dan (Jack Farthing). At his funeral they are shown a video of Dan and given the task of embarking on a road trip to scatter his ashes at different locations across the country, accompanied by a commentary from Dan explaining the significance of each spot.

Meanwhile, Seph is dealing with her own uncertainties regarding her relationship with James (Joe Dempsie), while Alex is getting over a painful break-up after walking in on her girlfriend cheating on her. The journey becomes a path of mental and emotional discovery for the pair as they encounter a series of offbeat events.

Beautifully shot and with a dry sense of humour that usually hits the mark, Burn Burn Burn is very British in tone, with dark themes explored through humour. Powerful, subtle, and rich, it shows a lot of promise from all involved.
Its restraint and a couple of less impactful diversions add charm but also decrease the volume to a whisper at times. Like the characters themselves though, it feels as though the film is learning and discovering what it really is before finally coming together towards the climax.
