BanterFlix Film Society Presents
The Dark Hedges Movie Club: HomeSick
Venue: The Belfast Film Festival’s Beanbag cinema
Date: Friday 31st March
The BanterFlix Film Society launch their Dark Hedges Movie Club within this year’s Belfast Film Festival with the Irish premiere of Jacob M Erwa’s tense psychodrama HomeSick.
Passion and insanity are dark neighbours!
Four walls, two people, one happiness that’s what ambitious young cello student Jessica (played by newcomer Esther Maria Pietsch) has in mind when she moves into a new apartment with her boyfriend Lorenz: but as the talented musician prepares to represent Germany in a prestigious musical competition, a sense of paranoia slowly descends upon her as she becomes convinced that she is the subject of harassment by someone within their apartment block and her suspicions lie with an elderly couple, who live above them.
As her paranoia escalates the strain begins to noticeably gnaw on Jessica’s everyday life and pretty soon her beautiful apartment becomes an oppressive prison of her own creation.
