'The Midnight Drives'

Written and directed by Mark Jenkin

Andy (Colin Holt) is a divorcee who brings his two young children, Casey and Gabby on an out-of-season trip to Cornwall.

Though struggling to build a relationship with these virtual strangers,  Andy is unwilling to waste a single precious moment and attempts to recreate the idyllic family holidays of his own youth.

As the trip wears on, relationships become increasingly strained until Andy decides to take his sleepy children on a series of spontaneous, dreamlike excursions that become 'The Midnight Drives'

The Midnight Drives is a bitter sweet film drama which beautifully captures the rugged beauty of West Penwith.

‘A moving film about parentage with an exceptional performance from Colin Holt at its centre’;
Derek Malcolm The Evening Standard.

This is a rare chance to see this 2007 independent Cornish feature film on the 10 year anniversary of its release.

Written and directed by Mark Jenkin (Bronco’s House, Happy Christmas), shot by renowned photographer Steve Tanner (Kneehigh / Wildworks) and produced by Simon Harvey (Weekend Retreat, Brown Willy).
