Debuted at this year’s Sundance festival where it won a two awards, Tyrannosauris a powerful new drama which follows the story of two lonely, damaged people brought together by circumstance.
Joseph (The Fixer’s Peter Mullan) is an unemployed widower and drinker who is crippled by his own volatile temperament and furious anger. Charity shop worker Hannah (Olivia Colman, Peep Show) is a respectable woman who appears wholesome and happy
When the pair are brought together, Hannah appears as Joseph’s potential saviour, someone who can temper his fury and offer him warmth, kindness and acceptance.
As their story develops Hannah’s own secrets are revealed — her relationship with husband James (Eddie Marsan) is violent and abusive — and as events spiral out of control, Joseph becomes her source of succour and comfort.
Tyrannosaur will be released in cinemas on October 7th
