Lorna Tucker’s documentary about homelessness and ways to help end it will be heading to UK cinemas in February. 

Director Lorna Tucker has turned her own experiences of homelessness into a touching, rousing documentary. Someone’s Daughter, Someone’s Son is heading to UK screens 16 February 2024 and arguably, it’s exactly the film we need right now as we face an unprecedented housing crisis. The film is narrated by Colin Firth. 

But the future didn’t always look too bright for Someone’s Daughter, Someone’s Son. The team had to crowdfund in order to secure a theatrical release and they’ve now hit that milestone. Their Kickstarter campaign met the £30 000 goal just recently and Sam Fender, Adam Buxton and Bryan Adams, who wrote a song for the film, are among some of the project’s supporters. 

There’s a trailer for Someone’s Daughter, Someone’s Son too, which you can watch below. 

“We’ve been touched by the outpouring of kindness and generosity from the public who’ve connected with Lorna’s story and want to actively make a difference to homelessness by supporting our film,” said Matt Hird, head of distribution at Dartmouth Films. 

With the February release date now confirmed, we have an even bigger platform to raise awareness and talk about solutions that get to the root of the systemic issues surrounding homelessness. We hope the film will be a valuable tool in the campaign to end homelessness once and for all.”

Tucker’s first feature documentary was Westwood, which debuted at Sundance in 2018. Her next film, Amá, explored the horrific sterilisation abuse of Native American women in America. Her latest film, Call Me Kate, about Katherine Hepburn, premiered on Netflix and Sky earlier this year. 

You can catch Someone’s Daughter, Someone’s Son in cinemas from 16 February 2024.
