Breaking Glass Pictures’ Vicious Circle Films label will release director Marek Losey’s The Hide on DVD September 6th. The taut thriller follows a lonesome birdwatcher who encounters a man on the run while in the isolated mudflats of Suffolk.
Synopsis: Roy Tunt (Alex MacQueen) is a quirky loner who spends his days in a “hide” – a secluded seaside shelter where he watches and documents the many species of birds that pass over the shoreline. One gloomy day his meticulous routine is interrupted by the arrival of David (Phil Campbell), a mysterious man on the run from the police. Though Roy is at first hostile toward the intruder, the two men gradually let their guards down and find themselves engaged in deep discussion through which they form a strange bond. But as the police draw near, both Roy and David unleash their dark sides, and the escalating tension pushes them to a tragic conclusion.
A tense, minimalist drama, this psychological game of cat-and-mouse takes audiences into the minds of two men who live on the outskirts of society. Featuring riveting performance and a darkly lush aesthetic, The Hide is a stunning feature debut from director Marek Losey.
