FILTH (2012) Updated Cast Info - Jamie Bell

STATUS: Pre-Producton

GENRE: Dark Comedy

DIRECTOR: Jon S. Baird

WRITER: Jon S. Baird (Based on the Bestselling novel by Irvine Welsh)

PRODUCER: Ken Marshall

CAST: James McAvoy, Jamie Bell, Brendan Gleeson, Toby Jones, Alan Cumming, Imogen Poots, Rupert Friend, Gary Lewis, Tony Curran, and Martin Compston


Filth is an Edinburgh-set darkly comedic drama; a riotous tale about the abuse of power through a character who is powerless to halt his own rapid decline into oblivion during a trivial police murder investigation. Despite it providing an ideal opportunity to eliminate his rival colleagues in the race for promotion - a promotion he so desperately craves - Detective Bruce Robertson (McAvoy) has other obstacles to overcome, including: alcohol & drug addiction, a dramatic deterioration in his mental health, and some increasingly demanding extra-marital affairs. It’s described by the film-makers as American Psycho meets Bad Santa via In Bruges.

RETREAT (2011) U.S. Premiere at FANTASTIC FEST - September 24th

Austin Texas



Martin (Cillian Murphy) and Kate (Thandie Newton) don’t screw around. When tragedy befalls them they don’t just isolate themselves in a cabin in the mountains, or take off for a distant country for an escape. Oh no, these two hightail it to a remote cottage. On an island. Completely by themselves. The only means of contact with the boat captain on the mainland who can come pick them up is a CB radio held together with duct tape and luck. It would seem like exactly what is needed after the trauma their marriage has suffered except for a generator that dies and the arrival of an unannounced guest- a young man named Jack (Jamie Bell) who stumbles towards the house bloodied and packing heat. They take him in and Jack soon reveals some disturbing information that is going to keep them trapped inside together for the foreseeable future.

Of course the fun in a film like RETREAT is in the revelation of the threat and the subsequent suspense when trust becomes an issue. These films live and die by their ability to engage audiences in the characters and their situations and this one certainly delivers. All the actors here are top notch, Murphy and Newton being especially in top form as more is revealed by what they don’t say to each other at times than what they do. First time director Carl Tibbetts keeps things moving at a rapid pace leaving little room for stress relief as the tension escalates and the script has more than just a few wicked surprises.

Far be it from me to spoil any of the twists in RETREAT but by the end I’m sure you will agree (as Martie and Kate would), they should have just stayed home and hired a therapist. (Brian Kelley)

RETREAT (2011) Opening Night Gala Screening Event - Jamie Bell

Retreat – Opening Night Gala Screening Event

Director Carl Tibbetts and surprise guest in attendence!

Following a personal tragedy, Kate (Newton) and Martin (Murphy) try to repair their increasingly strained relationship by revisiting the remote island cottage where they were once happy. But this island retreat proves more isolated than expected.

The generator shorts out, radio signals prove increasingly erratic and the cracks in the couple’s relationship start to grow ever worse. Then one day an injured soldier (Bell) is washed ashore, claiming a lethal airborne virus is devastating the outside world and that they must barricade themselves in the cottage if they wish to survive. But is he telling the truth…

Grimm’s Eye View: A tense, character-driven thriller, this taut three-hander is a harrowing study in emotional and psychological trauma. Exploring the effects of alienation and escalating paranoia, it is woundingly well-played by a strong and committed cast, making expert use of the beautiful yet remote locations. An auspicious debut for writer-director Carl Tibbetts.
