The Body at Brighton Rock Pushes One Park Ranger Too Far in this First Trailer

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...
Body at Brighton Rock recently had its debut at the SXSW Film Festival, in Austin. The film, from director Roxanne Benjamin (Southbound, 2015), features a lost park ranger and series of strange incidents. Wendy (Karina Fontes) finds a decomposing body in the park, but she also has a number of encounters with animals, while struggling with nighttime survival. As well, Body at Brighton Rock is a Protostar Pictures and Soapbox Films' production; Magnolia Releasing will distribute the film this Spring. And, the film also stars: Casey Adams (XX, 2017), Emily Althaus ("Orange is the New Black"), Miranda Bailey, Martin Spanjers and many more. The film's first trailer and poster are hosed here.

Director Benjamin recently talked about the Body at Brighton Rock at SXSW. She says of the film's genre: "this was my first serious attempt at suspense and mystery. It’s a genre I want to explore more of. This film was sort of a test." Film fans can see some of that mystery as the film switches from day to night, in the trailer. Benjamin was also inspired by her own time in national parks and how the film's central character overcomes a difficult situation: "the challenge of how to get an audience to connect with the emotional journey of a single character with little dialogue for the majority of its runtime — it’s a film set in this vast wilderness, but ultimately its about one girl stuck in one place trying to overcome her own hangups." The wilderness will definitely make you confront your own foibles, especially if events start to go south and the film looks to capture some of those challenges as seen in the trailer.

Magnolia Releasing will show the film this April. Body at Brighton Rock will show on Digital and in a few, select theatres this April 26th. Until then, film fans can find the latest promotional material, on the film, right here.

Release Date: April 26, 2019 (Digital, Theatres).

Director/writer: Roxanne Benjamin.

Cast: Karina Fontes, Casey Adams, Emily Althaus, Miranda Bailey and Martin Spanjers.
