Game of Thrones star Aidan Gillen collaborates for a third time with director Jamie Thraves (Treacle Jr, The Low Down) in this low-fi, high-stakes drama about the bizarre life of a jobbing actor suffering from insomnia.
In something of an autobiographical riff, Aidan (played by…Aidan Gillen) lives alone with his dog, Echo, and struggles to connect with his teenage daughter. He has complicated feelings about his mounting fame, a bad back, and he can’t sleep. Aiden is also currently playing a serial killer, a situation which becomes complicated by his “method” approach to acting.
In this strange, muted world of sleeplessness and metaphysical confusion, Aidan finds solace with a number of strangers he picks up. But he soon becomes concerned that someone is stalking him…
Gillen is in fine form, delivering jet black comedy in this fascinating and hilarious insight into the complexities and absurdities of an actor preparing.
Richard will host a Q&A with Gillen following the 9:15 pm screening on February 3. MORE INFO HERE!
