IFC Midnight has announced a December 8, 2017, VOD release for their UK psychological thriller Kaleidoscope, which stars Toby Jones (Berberian Sound Studio, Red Lights, Tale of Tales, “Wayward Pines”), Anne Reid (The Mother) and Sinead Matthews (Happy-Go-Lucky).
Described as a modern-day Psycho, Kaleidoscope explores the destructive relationship between a middle-aged man and his mother and is written and directed by Toby Jones’ brother Rupert Jones, who previously directed his brother in 2006 short “The Sickie”
“This intense, twisty thriller unfolds in the darkest corners of a man’s mind. Recently released from prison, mild-mannered Carl (Toby Jones) quietly attempts to move on with his life. Just as he embarks on his first date in 15 years, Carl’s fresh start is shattered by the sudden reappearance of his domineering mother (Anne Reid), whose presence awakens within him a deep-seated trauma. What unfolds is a brain-warping puzzle as reality and illusion, past and present collide and explode in violence. The debut feature from Rupert Jones is a provocative psychological mystery that asks: is it possible to escape our past?”
Producers are Matthew James Wilkinson (The Call Up) of Stigma Films and Maggie Monteith (Searching For Sugar Man) of Dignity Film Finance under the production banner of Longships Films Ltd.
Executive producers are Chris Reed and Phil Rymer with Roopesh Parekh (Poldark) co-producing.
