The trailer for Brown Willy -a micro budget comedy drama shot on location on Bodmin Moor, Cornwall -has been released ahead of the film’s much-anticipated release on April 29.
Brett, Ben and Simon are all involved with o-region, Cornwall’s story-telling collaborative.
Shot in just 10 days, Brown Willy is about friendship against the odds.
Here’s the blurb:
Michael and Pete have been best mates for over 35 years. They went to school together, they went to college together, they misspent their youth together. In recent years they’ve grown apart and don’t talk as much as they used to. But they’ll always be best friends.won’t they?
Michael is about to get married. He doesn’t want a traditional ‘stag do’ and instead opts for a quiet weekend camping on the wilds of Bodmin Moor, taking in the stunning views and climbing to the top of Brown Willy, the highest point in Cornwall.
Pete, however, has other ideas.
After an unexpected drink and drug fuelled first night the two men find themselves disorientated and lost. Struggling with monumental hangovers and dwindling supplies they attempt to get back to civilisation but find themselves in an increasingly desperate battle with the barren terrain, unforgiving environment and even each other.
As the ill fated trip draws on, physical endurance is pushed to the limit and dark secrets are revealed. This is a weekend that neither Michael or Pete will ever forget.
The film is going to be released in cinemas throughout the South West on April 29. Watch the trailer, and spread the word!
The April 29 screening of Brown Willy at the Plaza Truro will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers.
