Director Bio

Rupert Jones

P&I - Director Bio

Rupert Jones started out drawing storyboards and writing music for theatre. At the same time as directing pop promos (for artists such as Bob Dylan and The Streets), he started making short films. For Al Gore’s Live Earth in 2015, he wrote and directed Think, reportedly seen by an audience of a billion. His multi-award winning short, The Sickie, was his first collaboration with brother Toby Jones.

Part of the Best of British Strand


Toby Jones is at his very best in this complex and dark psychological thriller. Middle-aged Carl, recently released from prison, is trying to adjust to life on the outside. His bleak life is challenged by the arrival of his controlling mother (the ever excellent Anne Reid) just as he embarks on his first date in 15 years. Written and directed by Toby’s brother, Rupert Jones, the film is a twisted and tangled delve into one man’s psyche, as influences of past and present collide in his tortured mind.
