Starring Cosmo Jarvis (Calm With Horses, Lady Macbeth), Lauren Coe (The Halcyon) and Sadie Frost (Bram Stoker's Dracula, The Krays).
Set in an unremarkable Yorkshire coastal town, 'Nocturnal' follows the story of Pete (Cosmo Jarvis), a disheveled and darkly compelling thirty-something who works as an occasional handyman at the local high school. There, he meets Laurie (Lauren Coe), an emotionally withdrawn student-athlete who recently relocated to town with her mother (Sadie Frost). After a series of curt interactions, these two strangers form a precarious friendship built on their mutual connection as outsiders. As they spend more time together, their unique bond grows, unraveling the truth behind Pete's motives.
Rife with simmering emotional tension, the elegantly controlled character study boasts remarkably natural central performances from Jarvis and Coe, whose playful banter may conceal something more ominous.
