Everyone’s Going to Die, The feature directorial debut of British filmmaker duo Jones tells the story of two lost souls and one last chance.
Melanie’s life in a seaside town is going nowhere until she meets Ray, back in town with a shady job to do. A moment’s escape becomes a chance to save themselves and each other. Everyone’s Going to Die is a modern British story about coming home, getting by and the redemptive power of feeling you’re not alone.
Everyone’s Going to Die is one of a new breed of British independent films where story is the key driver in the film. Shot on a tiny budget in the summer of 2012, the film stars Rob Knighton, a former carpet fitter in his first ever acting role, and German star Nora Tschirner. The film was shot over one month in a small seaside village, where local townspeople worked as crew, extras and supporting artists. The Film was quickly selected to World Premiere at SXSW in 2013, and then nominated for Best British Film at Edinburgh International Film Festival.
"An utter gem. The reason why UK independent cinema can, at times, excite. Tschirner is brilliant. Knighton is a deadpan delight. A truly special film. "
"If one film deserves your attention this year, it should be this one. Spellbinding central performances...Some of the driest humor put to a film recently. A gem of a film; bittersweet, concise, thought provoking and entirely captivating. One of the most impressive films going"
"Exquisitely written. Tschirner plays it perfectly. Knighton is captivating. Deserves mainstream success and a long life as a cult classic."
