Check out the brand new trailer for Archipelago, starring TOM HIDDLESTON.
Archipelago is the second feature film from writer/director Joanna Hogg. Her first film Unrelated, also starring TOM HIDDLESTON, premiered at the 2007 London Film Festival, where it won the FIPRESCI International Critics prize. Unrelated went on to attract widespread critical acclaim on its UK release leading to Hogg receiving The Guardian’s Best Film Award 2009, and the Evening Standard’s Best Newcomer Award 2009.
New film Archipelago is a quietly devastating portrayal of a family in emotional crisis. Edward (TOM HIDDLESTON) is preparing to leave for a year of voluntary service in Africa. His mother Patricia (Kate Fahy) and his sister Cynthia (Lydia Leonard) decide to gather the family together on a remote island, as a farewell trip to say goodbye to Edward. Hired cook Rose (Amy Lloyd) and painting teacher Christopher (Christopher Baker), though bought in to help, only serve to bring the family’s anxieties into sharper focus. When Edward’s father is delayed, the unspoken forces of absence and loss bring the family’s buried anger and repressed tension to the surface.
Archipelago is released in the UK on 4th March 2011.
