WRITER | DIRECTOR
professional filmmaker London,
EGG is an absurd comedy about friendship and expecting the unexpected. Ivy and Margaret meet for tea, same time, same place, everyday. But today Ivy has some important news…
This was my directorial debut, starring Sally Phillips (Bridget Jones's Diary, Miranda, Smack The Pony) and Kiki Kendrick (The Nine Lives of Thomas Katz).
"Alice Trueman’s writing and directing deserves endless praise. Being able to capture so much raw emotion about the changes in friendship and the absurdity surrounding friendship and birth with so little in the way of dialogue is something for which Trueman should be admired.
The way she explores ordinary life through a lens of absurdity is refreshing and unique. Her work feels like a beautiful mixture of art cinema and sketch comedy, which is a wonderful combination that I hope to see more of in the future.
