Written and directed by creative collective Jones, this offbeat British feature is getting a cinema release more than two years after it premiered at South by Southwest 2013.
Everyone's Going to Die: film plot
The story follows Melanie (Nora Tschirner), a German woman living in an English coastal town and at a complete loose end, neglected by her artist fiancée who is a presence only by voice, a droning receiver on the other end of the telephone. The setting is appropriately trendy, a sepia-filtered Margate with rusting slot machines and bad fish and chip shops.
It’s here that she meets Ray (Rob Knighton), a mysterious and taciturn older man who looks like he’s seen some bad things, and maybe even done some, who is back in his hometown for the death of his brother. The two strike up an unlikely friendship, with quirky moments of innocent revelry and the hallmark activities of young love, like shoplifting sweets for the thrill and visiting Ray’s crazy family.
Everyone's Going to Die, film review
Tschirner and Knighton excel, even if the script occasionally lets this enjoyable yet clearly low-budget British indie down. Think Submarine and Dead Mans Shoes, churned up and sieved of their grit, reduced on a low heat and turned into a silky, charming and watchable offbeat romance.
