After making it’s UK Premiere at Edinburgh Film Festival this year, Rowan Athale’s Strange But True has a UK Trailer. Starring Nick Robinson, Margaret Qualley in a thriller that has more answers than you can see.
Robinson stars as Phillip, whose brother Ronnie died five years previously. Unexpectedly, Ronnie’s old girlfriend (Qualley) turns up pregnant, saying Ronnie is the father.
From the trailer it looks like its a film with two halves. A straight up emotional drama only turn into something a little more darker, thriller. Someone is hiding something? Who is lying? Could it getting slightly Sinister?
Laid up with a broken leg, Philip is living with his mother Charlene in upstate New York. It’s been five years since the death of Philip’s brother Ronnie, a devastating blow that has torn the Chase family apart. When they receive a visit from Melissa, Ronnie’s former girlfriend at the time of his death, wounds are re opened. Heavily pregnant, Melissa is under the belief that her unborn baby belongs to Ronnie.
Leaving Charlene angry and Philip incredulous, Melissa returns home to the cottage she rents from Gail and her husband Bill, a former police officer who now owns the hardware store where Melissa works. When Philip suggests that Melissa’s revelation isn’t impossible, Charlene calls Richard, her ex-husband – and father to Philip and Ronnie – now living in Florida with his new wife. Could it be that Melissa is giving birth to Ronnie’s child? Stranger things have happened. But the truth is altogether more alarming…
The film also stars Amy Ryan, Brian Cox, Greg Kinnear, Blythe Danner, Mena Massoud.
Strange But True will be released in the UK and Ireland from 27th September on Digital format.Powered by Sidelines
