Tyrannosaur – Directed by Paddy Considine, with Eddie “Hancock/Sherlock Holmes” Marsan

The story of Joseph a man plagued by violence and a rage that is driving him to self-destruction. As Joseph's life spirals into turmoil a chance of redemption appears in the form of Hannah, a Christian charity shop worker. Their relationship develops to reveal that Hannah is hiding a secret of her own with devastating results on both of their lives.

A moving story of finding redemption and love in the most unlikely places, Tyrannosaur follows the story of two damaged people brought together by circumstance: Joseph (Mullan), an unemployed widower, crippled by his own volatile temperament; and Hannah (Colman), a respectable charity shop worker, whose apparent happiness belies troubles of her own. A gripping drama, defined by powerhouse performances and a deeply affecting story – TYRANNOSAUR has been winning universal acclaim for its assured direction and standout performances from stars Peter Mullan (NEDS) and Olivia Colman (Peep Show), including a World Cinema Prize for directing and two World Cinema Special Jury Prizes for dramatic acting at Sundance Film Festival this year.
