British actor Toby Jones (Don’t Forget the Driver, Detectorists, Tinker Tailor, Soldier Spy) takes as the lead in "Kaleidoscope", a bleak, nightmarish psychological thriller written and directed by his brother Rupert Jones, making his feature film debut.
A sparse, drab flat, on a housing estate in London, loud frantic knocking and a dog barking. We meet Carl Woods (Toby Jones), an ex-prisoner with dreams of starting a gardening business, as he’s abruptly awoken from his sleep on the sofa. He goes to the door…no-one is there.
Exploring the house, he notices lipstick traces on a glass, an ashtray full of cigarette butts, he goes upstairs and finds a shocking discovery, a dead body in the bathroom. But is everything as it seems?
As the narrative twists and turns we follow Carl’s footsteps as he chats with his neighbour Monique, prepares for his first date in 15 years with someone he met online, Abby and gets a message announcing an impending, unwanted visit from his overbearing mother…
With time running out, Carl’s relationship with his mother and the ramifications of his night with Abby now collide in dramatic, surprising, unforgettable ways.
Garnering critical acclaim on its theatrical release, this intense thriller is set to arrive on UK digital platforms on 12 August 2019, followed by its DVD release on 23 September 2019.
The cast includes Sinead Matthews (Jellyfish), Cecilia Noble (Danny and the Human Zoo) and a stand out turn from national treasure Anna Reid, MBE (Last Tango in Halifax).
