Simon Aboud makes his feature debut as both writer and director, and with the likes of Timothy Spall (Harry Potter) and Kevin McKidd (Trainspotting, Grey’s Anatomy) supporting, you can be sure that this indie is definitely worth looking out for.
“An offbeat, coming-of-age love story set during the armed robbery of London’s most exclusive jewellers. Sometimes funny, often dark, always captivating and never what you expect.”
Roberts shined brilliantly in Richard Ayoade’s feature directorial debut last year, Submarine, and it will be interesting to see his next follow-up leading role.
Poots, similarly, is certainly on the rise. She’s been spotted on the set of Terrence Malick’s upcoming Knight of Cups (alongside Christian Bale, Natalie Portman, Cate Blanchett, Wes Bentley, and Freida Pinto), and has a slew of upcoming projects amongst very big names, including A Late Quartet (with Philip Seymour Hoffman and Christopher Walken), Filth (with James McAvoy and Jamie Bell), and The King of Soho (with Stephen Fry and Anna Friel). Not too bad at all for someone who only recently turned twenty-three.
Comes A Bright Day will be released in UK cinemas this Friday, 13th July. Here’s the great new trailer to encourage you to head out to your local cinema this weekend. Enjoy.
