FULL SYNOPSIS

Last Resort opens as Tanya (Dina Korzun), a young Russian traveling to England with her son Artiom (Artiom Strelnikov), is questioned at a British airport's passport control. Tanya tells the official she is visiting England on a vacation, but then switches her story and says that her English fiancé is meeting her, and finally, out of desperation, asks for political asylum. She and Artiom are duly packed off to an immigrants' center in a grim coastal town, where they are given a small apartment and informed that their application for asylum will take over a year to process. After Tanya's fiancé dumps her over the phone, she gradually befriends Alfie ([[Performer~P271580~Paddy Considine~paddyconsidine]]), who runs an arcade. Alfie wins the trust of Tanya and her street-smart son, and soon Tanya must decide how far she wants to carry her relationship with this new friend. Last Resort was screened at the 2000 Edinburgh International Film Festival. ~ Rebecca Flint Marx, Rovi
