Mark Jenkin’s The Midnight Drives is to be screened for the UK bosses of the big US studios including Warner Bros and 20th Century Fox.
Produced by Truro-based production-types o-region, the flick was filmed on location in Cornwall last March and screened at the Cornwall Film Festival along with Dressing Granite (of which more later).
The film tells the tale of a divorced dad, whose fiery determination to enjoy the limited time he has with his brats leads to a strained week of damp accommodation, dodging the rain and enjoying some rigidly-scheduled fun. That’d be where Cornwall comes in then.
Click here to watch the rather excellent trailer and tune into D+CFilm tomorrow for news about a screening of Dressing Granite in Penzance (told you we’d get round to it).
