Rising star Jamie Bacon writes, alongside producer Charles Streeter and stars as the lead in the award-winning feature debut Into The Mirror. This original, exciting and powerful drama is helmed by one to watch, first time director Lois Stevenson with Richard E.Grant as associate producer. It takes us on a breathtaking journey of a young man’s fight to find his identity and way in the world.
This fresh take on discovering who you really are, has been wowing audiences on its US release, at festivals across Europe and has won awards including Best Film at The Netherlands’ New Vision Film Festival, and Best Actor for Jamie Bacon at the New Renaissance Film Festival, Amsterdam. The film is now set to premiere in the UK on 22 November 2019 in limited cinemas and on digital.
Featuring an incredible original soundtrack from lauded musician, producer and visual artist Johnny Jewel (Drive, Twin Peaks: The Return), we follow Daniel (Bacon – Brighton, White Lines), a sensitive young man who has recently moved to London and has landed, what appears from the outside, to be the ideal job.
As he climbs the career ladder, Daniel is finding life harder and harder as he struggles with his demons. The death of his mother, and fall out with his father has left him reeling and his overbearing boss Harry (John Sackville – The Crown, The Wedding Date), is making his life even more difficult with his brutish behaviour and insistence on Daniel being ‘one of the lads’. Bullied to join in on debauched nights out, Daniel doesn’t feel he belongs in this world…
When co-worker, Blue (Beatrice May – Rabb.it, A Mother’s Ruin), walks into his life at exactly the right moment, she introduces Daniel to another way of life.
In cinemas & digital 22nd November
