In Debbie Tucker Green’s first feature »Second Coming«, a pregnancy happens without conception. This miraculous event occurs in a regular family in contemporary Britain, complete with a mother, father and 11-year old boy. The parents are burnt out from their jobs and have had no time for intimacy, and the mother has not had any extramarital lovers. Having established this magic realism starting-point, the film develops into a fragmental, yet naturalistic, portrait of British, middle-class family life.

Closely, it explores its psychological facets, following the characters in detail behind the suburban façade. Their psychological trials become the focal point, as the setting ultimately proves to be more important than the plot. An experienced playwright, Tucker Green weaves the story together in fractured narration – a trademark style, derived from poetry and spoken word rather than playwriting. Excellent chamber play by a tight-knit and well-casted ensemble makes »Second Coming« a memorable feature film debut.
