With a little over a week to go until its release, a new UK trailer has arrived online for writer-director Daniel Mulloy’s refugee drama Home which stars Jack O’Connell and Holliday Grainger; take a look below after the official synopsis…
A family, led by their confident and caring father (Jack O’Connell), heads out on what appears to be a holiday. However it slowly becomes clear that they are in fact leaving the security and safety of a leafy suburb to cross Europe and make their way into the middle of a war zone. As they travel the father’s re-assurances ring hollow as under great stress the father buckles and the mother’s (Holliday Grainger) strength takes over.
Intimate and touching the film reaches for a truth through its absurd premise of reversing the refugee journey. HOME depicts the breakdown and rebuilding of trust and love amid the horrors of war and migration. We witness the realities and trauma of being refugees as within the family, roles of leadership and bravery are passed from one parent to another.
HOME is a sensitive, layered and complex exploration of how fear can bring out the best and worst in all of us.
Home is set for release on June 20th.
