SXSW issued their first programming announcement yesterday and while The Evil Dead
and The Incredible Burt Wonderstone
may have dominated the headlines there were other worthwhile gems lurking within. Gems like Everyone's Going To Die
, a feature film by UK writing-directing duo Jones.
Two lost souls. One last chance.
Melanie's life in a seaside town is going nowhere until she meets
Ray, back in town with a shady job to do. A moment's escape becomes a
chance to save themselves, and each other.
Everyone's Going To Die is a modern British story about coming home,
getting by and the redemptive power of feeling you're not alone. A story
where porn hotlines rub shoulders with sexy beavers on rollerskates;
where the past is laid to rest, two lives are changed and nobody,
finally, is going to die.
Tonally Jones have set themselves a difficult take here, blending elements of darkly absurd crime comedy with a quirky, indie romance. But the trailer suggests they've managed to hit a sweet spot between the two. Take a look below.
