The official trailer for British Psychological Thriller, Marooned Awakening, has been released . This is the first glimpse at the disorientating tale of a boy trapped on his island home. The film stars Murray McArthur (Of Gods and Warriors, The Northman, Wonka), Tilly Keeper (You, EastEnders), Tim McInnerny (Notting Hill, 101 Dalmatians) and new talent Cameron Ashplant.
Marooned Awakening follows Alex (played by Cameron Ashplant), who is offered a job as a journalist by the National Press editor-in chief (played by Tim McInnerny). Alex uses this opportunity to escape his island home, a decision contested by his father (played by Murray McArthur), a grieving fisherman, and also by his longtime girlfriend, Emily (played by Tilly Keeper). Before setting off overseas, Alex embarks on one final investigation to report a local boat accident. But the story doesn’t appear to add up. In searching for answers the young journalist is forced to question his own perception of reality, as it becomes impossible to leave and get out…
Lead actor Murray McArthur says ‘I’m so excited to share the trailer which showcases the beauty of Guernsey, with some stunning cinematography, and gives you a sense of the darker currents beneath the surface of island-life’
Directed by Musaab Mustafa.
Marooned Awakening will head into the festival circuit later this year but will first premiere to a full 400 seat cinema on the 3rd of September 2022.
