Coming soon to UK cinemas is the new drama Scarborough. Two mismatched lovers arrive at the British seaside town of Scarborough, seeking an escape from the constraints of real life. Liz, desperately shy and beautiful, seems older than her companion, the happy-go-lucky and impulsive Daz. In their faded hotel room, amongst the peeling wallpaper and away from the prying eyes of their hometown, they laugh, quarrel, make love and enjoy their anonymity.
In an identical room in the same hotel, the sensitive artist Aiden and Beth, a fiery and impulsive young woman, tell the same story. As both couples are forced to come to terms with the illicit nature of their impossible love, power shifts from one lover to the other, and joy turns to heartache as they reel from the destructive force of illicit love.
From the producers of Lady Macbeth, the film stars Jodhi May, Jordan Bolger, Edward Hogg and Jessica Barden. It is adapted from the acclaimed play by Fiona Evans and is written and directed by Barnaby Southcombe. The film will get its UK premiere on the 6th of September at The Stephen Joseph Theatre, Scarborough, North Yorkshire followed by screenings in selected cinemas across the country.
