Winterlong is his debut feature as writer and director.
When his estranged wife deposits his teenage son Julian (Harper Jackson) at the doorstep of his remote caravan home, solitary (though charming) poacher Francis (an excellent Francis Magee) must amend his ways, take on new responsibilities and engage with the world. But just as the two begin to bond, Julian takes a friend into the woods where an accident occurs that puts them under the authorities’ spotlight. They must make a decision that will forever change their lives. A striking new drama also starring Doon Mackichan.
