Permissive

Permissive

Synopsis

When Suzy arrives in London to visit an old school friend, she is unwittingly plunged into the ruthless world of the 'groupie'. Fuelled by sex, drugs and jealousy, her new lifestyle fosters in her a cold cynical instinct for survival. But tragedy is never far away. With its blend of gritty location work, brooding flash-forward devices and a soundtrack by cult acid-folk and progressive rock bands Comus, Forever More and Titus Groan, Permissive is a dark British countercultural artefact that is shot through with grim authenticity.
