Coming Soon - The Hide

Vicious Circle Films releases have, in my opinion, been a real mixed bunch with some very good, some bad and some ugly hitting our screens. The Hide however is one that I am quite excited about. Hailing from the UK, and set in my old neck of the woods, the preview definitely looks promising. It's been out for a couple of years on the other side of the pond but Vicious Circle will be releasing it on September 6th. I reckon it will be one to keep an eye on.

July 13, 2011 – Philadelphia, PA — Breaking Glass Pictures’ Vicious Circle Films label will release director Marek Losey’s “The Hide” on DVD September 6.  The taut thriller follows a lonesome birdwatcher who encounters a man on the run while in the isolated mudflats of Suffolk.

Synopsis: Roy Tunt is a quirky loner who spends his days in a “hide” – a secluded seaside shelter where he watches and documents the many species of birds that pass over the shoreline.  One gloomy day, his meticulous routine is interrupted by the arrival of David, a mysterious man on the run from the police.  Though Roy is at first hostile towards the intruder, the two men gradually let their guards down and find themselves engaged in deep discussion through which they form a strange bond.  But as the police draw near, both Roy and David unleash their dark sides, and the escalating tension pushes them to a tragic conclusion.

A tense, minimalist drama, this psychological game of cat-and-mouse takes audiences into the minds of two men who live on the outskirts of society.   Featuring riveting performance and a darkly lush aesthetic, The Hide is a stunning feature debut from director Marek Losey.
