The Outside of AugustUnknown - 2003
The prolonged absences of her frequently absent, peripatetic mother, Charlotte, have a profound impact on her children as Alice grows increasingly unconnected and her brother, August, uses his tenuous bond with Charlotte to achieve a certain freedom, until, years later, the revelation of a long-buried secret forces Alice to come to terms with her dysfunctional family.
