Ahead of its release this Friday, a poster and trailer have arrived online for the upcoming drama Lost Transmissions. Written and directed by Katharine O’Brien, the film stars Simon Pegg as a respected music producer trying to outrun his colourful delusions after lapsing on his schizophrenia medication, while his friends try to get him the psychiatric help he needs.
Hannah, a shy songwriter, discovers that her friend, respected record producer Theo Ross, has lapsed on his medication for schizophrenia. Hannah rallies a group of friends to help commit Theo to a psychiatric facility, chasing him as he outruns his colorful delusions through the glamour and grit of Los Angeles. From the highs of rock ‘n’ roll to rock bottom, it’s a story of the unsung heroes behind the hits and the inadequacies of our mental health system.
Joining Pegg in the cast of Lost Transmissions are Juno Temple, Alexandra Daddario, Jamie Harris, Rebecca Hazlewood, Tao Okamoto, and Bria Vinaite.
Lost Transmissions is set for release on March 13th.
