A new trailer has arrived online for writer-director Jake Gavin’s upcoming drama Hector, which stars Peter Mullan in the title role as a homeless pensioner attempting to reconnect with his family. Take a look below after the official synopsis…
Hector McAdam (Peter Mullan) is embarking on his annual journey from Scotland to a London shelter, where Christmas cheer and a turkey dinner await him. But, aware this might be his last, Hector opts to reconnect with his past and reunite with those he left behind.
Life without a home isn’t easy but Hector is resilient, accepting of people, and life, as they come. He meets with friendship and kindness, disappointment and cruelty, discomfort and joy. His cross-country odyssey brings chance encounters, companions old and new who need his support as much as he needs theirs.
Hector is set for release on December 11th in the UK and features a cast that also includes Keith Allen, Natalie Gavin, Sharon Rooney, Sarah Solemani, Ewan Stewart, Laurie Ventry, Stephen Tompkinson and Gina McKee.
