by Matthew Martino || Features

The British independent film scene continues to excel as new crime-thriller Winter Ridge recently finished shooting and has already sold to 2 distribution markets at the Cannes Films Festival in May 2017.

The film brings considerable star power in the form of Hannah Waddingham , Alan Ford and Olwen Catherine Kelly.

The film stars up-and-coming actor Matt Hookings with Justin McDonald and Michael McKell as a team of detectives on the hunt for a serial killer who appears to be targeting
the elderly.

The shoot was overseen by award-winning director Dom Lenoir and producers Nancy Bressolles and Chris Hardman who has worked on films such as Avatar, Star Wars and Kingsman.

Director Dom Lenoir said “It was the dramatic nature of the story and the detective genre that first attracted him to the project.”

He added “The elements that deal with degenerative conditions such as Alzheimer’s struck close to home with his own family and experiences. “I’m hoping that this film will raise an interesting debate on the condition and provide a heart-warming understanding of loneliness.”

The film is due out for an early 2018 release!
