Low Tide tells the story of the last three days of a woman’s life; Kathy is dying of cancer and is being cared for at home by her husband Tom and and a visiting nurse to whom she forms a strong attachment. An old friend comes to visit and a rift is healed. Memories haunt her as she and Tom attempt to come to terms with her infidelities, their unhappy marriage and the loss of their only child.

“Jon Sanders’ Low Tide is a micro-budget drama about the last days of a terminally ill middle-aged woman. Distinguished by an elegant, very English sense of formal restraint but raging with raw, heartfelt emotion, the film is remarkably moving, sometimes unbearably so. It’s well worth seeing.” (Time Out)

“Low Tide offers a radical template for a revived British auteur cinema.” (Vertigo Magazine – Spring 2008)
