Ahead of its UK release this Friday, a new trailer has arrived online for writer-director Tom Geens’ psychological drama Couple in a Hole which stars Kate Dickie (Game Of Thrones, The Witch) and Paul Higgins (Line Of Duty, The Thick Of It). Watch it below after the official synopsis…
A middle aged, middle class British couple is living like feral creatures in a camouflaged hole in the middle of a vast forest somewhere in France.
Less than a year ago, they lost everything in a freak wildfire. Traumatised to the bone, the couple vanished and ended up where they are.
She does not want to return to civilisation because only here she feels she can make amends. Her husband, on the other hand, finds the constant reminder of their misfortune increasingly unbearable.
A secret friendship with a persistent local farmer only increases his wish to leave. The couple’s relationship is pushed to breaking point and repressed emotions come bursting out to the surface.
Couple in a Hole is set for release on April 8th.
