Luke Morgan has demonstrated a willingness for offbeat storylines and unconventional situations and his feature debut concerns a loved-up elderly couple’s suicide pact. With the unwitting assistance of his granddaughter Alice, the roguish and cantankerous Thaddeus and his girlfriend Sally escape from their nursing home to carry out their plan in a coastal hideaway. It’s unusual for a debut director to focus in on themes of death and ageing, albeit in a comic drama, but it is to Morgan and his leads’ credit that they do so with little vanity.
Accompanied by a screening of the short film Battleship (10 mins).
There will be a post-screening Q&A with the director.
