The film is a suspenseful psychological drama that displays impressive sleight of hand on the part of first-time writer/director Max Currie, hiding key plot elements in plain sight. With a pair of former magicians for protagonists, played by Sia Trokenheim and Brett Stewart, Currie keeps us utterly intent on unpacking the unstable family dynamics we witness.
“A bold, unusual and thrilling New Zealand drama that marks the arrival of a striking new talent – filmmaker Max Currie.” — Carl Spence, Seattle International Film Festival
The film will premiere in New Zealand on Monday 28 July with screenings in Auckland and Wellington as part of NZIFF 2014. Simultaneously, the film will be available to view on long-haul flights and on the New Zealand Film Commission’s recently launched Films on Demand platform.
