Reading that title back, I meant the film looks terrifying but Brian Cox, as the ex-stepfather of a woman who has disappeared with her children, is very chilling too.
Claes Bang is Will, a happy husband and father with what looks like a dream life in a big London house with his wife (Olga Kurylenko) and their family. (When you watch the trailer do not get distracted at how anyone afford a family house that size in London. Leave that to me.)
Here’s the synopsis:
When Will (Claes Bang) discovers his wife Rosalind (Olga Kurylenko) and their three children have suddenly disappeared, his perfect world begins to unravel. Will sets off on a frantic search across Europe, finally locating them in a remote village in northern France.
Relief soon turns to horror when he discovers his baby son has mysteriously died. Not knowing who he can trust, Will sets out to discover the truth about his wife’s disappearance and the death of his son, complicated by Rosalind’s mother Vivian and former stepfather Milton, who want to “protect” Rosalind for their own reasons.
The Bay of Silence is written by and stars UK actress Caroline Goodall, and is based on Lisa St Aubin de Téran’s novel of the same name.
The film is directed by Academy Award™ nominee Paula van der Oest and co-stars Alice Krige as Vivian, and Shalisha James-Davis as Candy the family nanny.
It’s out on DVD and digital HD on 28 September.
