Dirty God is a portrait of a woman with incredible resilience. Jade is no passive victim; she makes her own choices - good or bad - and deals with the consequences. Polak’s first English-language feature is controlled and subtle, without the director surrendering any of her typical intensity. Newcomer Vicky Knight, who was badly burned as a child, is a genuine revelation in a powerful lead performance.
