Scott Chambers, Morgan Watkins, Yasmin Paige / Fiction / English

A striking new British drama.

An impressive feature debut for young British director Joe Stephenson (who is now in pre- production on a much-hyped Noel Coward biopic set to star Ian McKellen and Vanessa Redgrave) about optimistic 15-year-old Richard – troubled with learning difficulties - and his restless and abusive older brother. When Richard falls for 17-year-old Annabel (Yasmin Paige, from Submarine) the relationship between the brothers is stretched to breaking point, family secrets are revealed and life for Richard starts to finally change direction.
