While you may not recognize the name of Dutch director Diederik van Rooijen there's a very good chance that you're either familiar with his work already or will be very soon. You see, van Rooijen was the writer and director of Dutch television series Penoza, a series that has since been remade for US television as Red Widow. And last year he released taut thriller Taped, a feature film that also now has a US version in the works. So the man knows a thing or two about putting mass audiences onto the edges of their seats. And he's doing it again with Daylight.
Young lawyer Iris discovers that she has an older, autistic half-brother
Ray, who is in prison for the atrocious murder of his neighbour and her
five year-old daughter. When she meets Ray he reminds her a lot of her
own son Aron, who also is autistic, and she starts to believe that he is
innocent. But when she starts an investigation to prove this she is
forced to ask many questions, and little by little, despite her hopes
and doubts, her true family history is revealed...
Monique van de Ven, Fedja van Huêt and Angela Schijf star. Check the trailer below.
