The Trouble with Jessica heads to the big screen

‘…A black comedy satirising the British middle classes…’

Sarah (Shirley Henderson) and Tom (Alan Tudyk) are a married couple in terrible financial trouble.

Director, Co-writer & Composer Matt Winn:

“The Trouble with Jessica is the film I’ve always wanted to make – a black comedy satirising the British middle classes, examining their hopes, dreams, duplicities and hypocrises. It’s a state of the nation piece about Britain now that asks a simple question: who are we and what are our values?”

On the brink of losing everything, they’ve managed to find a buyer for their stylish London home. When their best friends Richard (Rufus Sewell) and Beth (Olivia Williams) come round for a final dinner, an uninvited old friend, Jessica (Indira Varma), tags along.

“Wickedly brilliant…Smart and funny”  

ROLLING STONE UK ★★★★

“Brims with charm…undercut by an uncurbed, ruthlessly dark humour” 

SIGHT AND SOUND

After a seemingly trivial argument, Jessica hangs herself in the garden. Tom goes to call the police when Sarah realizes if the buyer finds out, the sale will collapse, meaning definite financial ruin for their family. The only solution – to convince Richard and Beth to take Jessica’s body to her flat and make it look like she killed herself there. If they’re clever enough about it, what could possibly go wrong?

Director, Co-writer & Composer Matt Winn:

“Working with this ensemble cast – comprised of some of the country’s best actors – was a director’s dream and I’m thrilled that our film will be hitting the big screen soon.”

The Trouble with Jessica is released in UK & Irish cinemas from 5th April www.jessicafilm.co.uk
