Andres Heger Bratterud
72-year-old Stuart has been suppressing his sexuality since childhood. He is a Jehovah’s Witness, and a member of a tightly knit community, but going door-to-door to spread the word risks exposing his secret life to those around him, leading to their judgement and condemnation.
Courted has been shortlisted for this year’s Best British Award, sponsored by Pinewood Studios.
