Cathy Tyson and Katie Jarvis square off in British Urban Film Festival Closing Night Premiere, Saturday 9th june, Curzon Soho 6pm.
Cathy Tyson, star of Mona Lisa and Band Of Gold leads an all star cast which includes Katie Jarvis (Fish Tank), Dave Johns (I, Daniel Blake), Danielle Harold (EastEnders), former Harry Potter star Josh Herdman, Vas Blackwood (Snatch) and David Hayman (Trial and Retribution). The cast is rounded off by Neal Ward, Kedar Williams-Stirling (Roots) and Shantelle Rochester-Henry (Rise of the Krays) who also serves as producer for Ida Rose.
Set against an urban backdrop, Tyson's character, a pathologist who goes by the name of Margaret Powers, seeks a path of vengeance when she captures and tortures the shadowy figure of Finn (played by Neal Ward) whom she believes murdered her son. In a bid to extract a confession, the path to vengeance leads to tragedy and unearths deeply troubling truths. Margaret is helped by Zoe a twenty-something recovering addict, who was once a lover of Margaret’s son, and has learned to survive on her instincts and wits.
Together Zoe and Margaret, who under ordinary circumstances would have nothing in common, kidnap Finn O’Neil, the son of an old school, local gangster. Finn, having managed to escape justice through his father’s influence, is held in a disused, derelict shipyard, a haven where junkies and prostitutes take their clients, patrolled by a pair of mismatched night watchmen. As Margaret’s plans and Zoe’s true motivation are slowly revealed, shocking facts emerge and the characters are drawn into a violent and horrifying conclusion.
Two Graves marks the directorial debut of writer Gary Young who also penned the Michael Caine crime flick, Harry Brown (2009)
