Winner of Best Narrative Feature and the Audience Award at SXSW, Natural Selection marks an auspicious feature debut from writer/director Robbie Pickering. A fresh, funny mixture of road movie and wry odd-couple comedy, it features a terrific central performance from Rachael Harris as Linda White, a fortysomething Christian housewife trapped in a loveless, childless marriage to pious husband Abe. When Abe suffers a stroke at a family planning clinic, Linda Thanks to Goldcrest Films discovers that he has been secretly donating sperm for over twenty years. She sets off in search of his eldest biological son, a mullet-headed ex-con called Raymond. Part of Glasgow Film Festival 2012: The State of Independents.
