Only You takes home two awards at the BIFA’s
Only You takes home Debut Director and Best Actor at the British Independent Film Awards 2019.
The awards took place on Sunday the 1st of December at the Old Billingsgate, London. Nominated for four awards, Only You’s director Harry Wootliff took home the Douglas Hickox award (Best Debut Director) and Josh O’Connor won Best Actor for his role as Jake.
Elena (Laia Costa), 35, and Jake (Josh O’Connor), 26, meet by chance on New Years Eve, fighting for the same taxi. But, instead of going their separate ways after a shared ride, they start a passionate relationship. Within weeks they are living together, and not long after they talk about starting a family. But, as the seasons pass, reality catches up with them. Falling in love was the easy part, but can they remain in love when life doesn’t give them everything they hoped for?
