IN OUR NAME

 

(UK/2011directed by Brian Welsh)

Suzy's a British soldier, born and bred, but fitting back into civilian life after fighting in Iraq isn't easy. Haunted by the responsibility she feels for the death of an Iraqi child, she becomes obsessed with the safety of her own daughter, feeling the need to protect her against a threat that doesn't seem to exist. As Suzy's paranoia builds, her behavior becomes more and more erratic, until finally, she puts her own child in serious danger. In Our Name is the first British film to deal with the aftermath of war from a female point of view. (90 min.)
