Florence Pugh's debut movie The Falling is now available to watch on BBC iPlayer after it aired last night (February 11) on BBC Two.

With film credits including Ari Aster's Midsommar, Greta Gerwig's Little Women, Marvel's Black Widow and Christopher Nolan's Oppenheimer, it's hard to imagine a time when Pugh was not a household name.

Now fans can watch the actress in her breakthrough role in Carol Morley's 2014 film The Falling which is available to watch on iPlayer for 29 days.

Written and directed by Morley, the film stars Pugh in her breakthrough role opposite Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams as a pair of schoolgirls named Abbie and Lydia who encounter some strange goings on at a boarding school in England.

"At a strict English girls' boarding school in 1969, charismatic Abbie and intense and troubled Lydia are best friends. After a tragedy occurs at the school, a mysterious fainting epidemic breaks out that threatens the stability of all involved," reads the synopsis.

The Falling wasn't the only film airing on BBC Two last night – Paul Mescal's Aftersun also had its terrestrial premiere and is available to watch now on iPlayer for at least a year.

Directed by Charlotte Wells, the film follows a young father named Callum (played by Mescal) and his 11-year-old daughter Sophie (played by Frankie Corio) as they holiday in Turkey in the '90s.

Meanwhile, Pugh, who played Jean Tatlock in Christopher Nolan's Oppenheimer, recently opened up about working with the director.

"I think every single person has come to set knowing that they have been hired because, somewhere along the line, Chris thought that you did a good job, and this goes for crew as well," she said.

"I've never been in an environment where the crew and the cast are so desperate to show what they can do that it creates this incredible buzz."

The Falling is available to watch now on BBC iPlayer.
