The film Jodie Comer, Joel Fry, Katherine Waterston, Gina McKee, Nina Sosanya, Mark Strong, and Benedict Cumberbatch.
Adapted from Megan Hunter's prophetic 2017 novel, Mahalia Belo and screenwriter Alice Birch model their film on the author's spare, elliptical prose, keeping the disaster just off-screen and letting their actors wear the pressure and tension of the story on their faces as their world gets a little smaller and a lot scarier.
Forced out of London by cataclysmic flooding, a new mother (Jodie Comer) her partner (Joel Fry), and their infant make their way to his parents’ home in the countryside, only to find the situation growing increasingly desperate there, as well.
An apocalyptic drama that still makes room for hope, The End We Start From uses the language of genre to ask the only question that matters about our increasingly bleak future: What will you do? And why aren't you doing it already?
The screenplay is written by Alice Birch, produced by Leah Clarke, Liza Marshall, Adam Ackland, Amy Jackson, Sophie Hunter. The release date will be announced shortly.
