Trailer for CRUEL SUMMER Shows Some Pretty Cruel Teenagers
Danny (Richard Pawulski), a teenager with autism, escapes the inner city for the beautiful countryside as part of his Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme. Little does he know, that bitter Nicholas (Danny Miller from Emmerdale Farm) is hunting him, stemming form a lie created by the enamoured and envious Julia (Natalie Martins) and Calvin (Reece Douglas). As the three close in on Danny, Nicholas' behaviour becomes increasingly erratic and violent, and Julia and Calvin must decide whether to go through with Nicholas' deadly plan.
Between BBC Wales producing Doctor Who and favourite son Gareth Evans making waves with The Raid, Wales is quickly becoming a hotbed of new film and television talent. The trailer shows a pretty intense story, with an escalation of violence that is disturbing as it reflects how terrifying teenagers can be when they think they're in the right and know how much power they have over someone weaker. The film includes music by Josef Prygodzicz of Welsh band Winter Villains and material from UK hip-hop legend Thomas 'Verb T' Conning (who also has a cameo in the film). We've got the trailer and some stills below.
