Our February main film will be Bait...

 

Drama about a Cornish fisherman (played by Ed Rowe – Kernow King) who attempts to deal with changing times and circumstances in his fishing village.

As visually distinctive as it is narratively satisfying, Bait blends a classic aesthetic with timely themes to produce a thrillingly original and uniquely enriching drama. Martin Ward is a cove fisherman, without a boat. His brother Steven has re-purposed their father's vessel as a tourist tripper, driving a wedge between the brothers. With their childhood home now a get-away for London money, Martin is displaced to the estate above the picturesque harbour. As his struggle to restore the family to their traditional place creates increasing friction with tourists and locals alike, a tragedy at the heart of the family changes his world.

“It may look like it was made on a shoestring 50 years ago, but this abrasive seaside parable is a quietly thrilling piece of modern filmmaking.” Time Out

“Strange, spellbinding and timely. One of the most thrillingly original British films in years.” Little White Lies
