  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

Based on Caitlin Moran's best-selling novel. A semi-autobiographical story of Wolverhampton-born teenager Johanna Morrigan, who reinvents herself as Dolly Wilde: fast-talking, lady sex-adventurer; moves to London, and gets a job as music critic in the hope of saving her poverty stricken family back home in the Midlands.
As 'Dolly' gains notoriety as an enfant terrible, she has finally figured out how to build a girl – but is this the girl she wanted to build?
