Tyrannosaur – Trailer

Tyrannosaur, Paddy Considine’s feature directorial debut, has already received much critical praise, particularly at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.

Starring Olivia Colman, Eddie Marsan and Peter Mullan, Tyrannosaur looks both flawlessly acted and emotionally devastating.

Colman plays Hannah, a Christian charity shop worker, whose religious optimism is tragically undermined by the abuse she suffers at the hands of her husband James (Marsan). Hannah develops a tenuous friendship with Joseph (Mullan), a man plagued by his own destructive behaviour.

Marsan, since his truly terrifying performance in This is England ’86, has for me, simply cemented his ability to create such powerful performances.

Tyrannosaur, whilst certainly not a film to look forward in any traditional sense, is a film that should surely be seen by a wide audience: its cast and directorial accolades are reason enough.
