NORFOLK starring Denis Menochet to premiere in competition at Rotterdam


Tuesday 6 January:  The International Film Festival Rotterdam announced its programme today including the World Premiere of Martin Radich’s NORFOLK which will compete for the Hivos Tiger Award and is the only UK film in this year’s competition.  
                                                                                                                           
NORFOLK, the second feature from BAFTA-nominated writer/director Martin Radich (Crack Willow), is a haunting thriller about a reclusive father and son whose close relationship is threatened when the father’s violent past catches up with them.  

Boasting an exciting European cast, the film stars Denis Ménochet (Inglourious Basterds, Robin Hood), Barry Keoghan (’71, Stay), Eileen Davies (Sightseers, Another Year), Sean Buckley (The Fifth Element, Les Misérables) and newcomer Goda Letkauskaite.

Set in Norfolk , amidst an idyllic, brooding landscape, an innocent teenage boy and his battle-weary father live a simple life.  Days are spent hunting, fishing and daydreaming. Then out of nowhere, the father, a mercenary, is given a final deadly mission, one that threatens to destroy not just the target, but the love between a father and his son.
