Viewers would be smart to surrender to Herself, a relentlessly hopeful film capable of eliciting all of the feels. After Sandra (Clare Dunne) escapes her abusive partner, she sets out to secure shelter for herself and her two young daughters, settling on an affordable self-build. With no experience and nothing more than a plan she found online, Sandra experiences some nearly unfathomable good fortune. She receives land and a loan from Peggy (Harriet Walter), the woman she cleans for, meets a contractor named Aido (Conleth Hill), who is willing to help, and finds a gaggle of friends to join in. Suspend all cynicism here, though, and Herself will provide an immersive journey that, while mostly heartwarming, still packs a few punches to the gut as Sandra sticks it to a shoddy housing system and a sinister ex to rebuild her life.
