Comes a Bright Day has all the ingredients to be a great product of the UK independent film system. First of all, it’s a crime drama with a dark sense of humor—“an offbeat, coming-of age love-story set during the armed robbery of London’s most exclusive jewelers.” The cast is led by up-and-comers Craig Roberts (Submarine) and Imogen Poots (Fright Night), surrounded by veteran actors Kevin McKidd (Grey’s Anatomy) and Timothy Spall (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows) and fresh face Anthony Welsh. And the official website is packed with material to spread the word about the film, including images, featurettes, and a production blog.
Director Simon Aboud is in post-production right now on his feature debut, with an eye toward premiering at Sundance or Berlin in 2012. Hit the jump to see a ton of new images plus a few videos from the set of Comes a Bright Day.
Here’s the official synopsis:
An offbeat, coming-of age love-story set during the armed robbery of London’s most exclusive jewellers. Sometimes funny, often dark, always captivating and never what you expect.
