There are countless amounts of independent films that come out daily. Film festivals, whether big or small are full of them! Sometimes, they revolve around the same type of subject and are of the same creed in tone. However, occasionally, you find a gem. The Darkest Universe is that gem.
The film revolves around Zac, a young conservative banker whose eccentric younger sister Alice has gone missing alongside her boyfriend Toby. Being the last person to see her, waving them goodbye on Regent’s Canal, Zac is determined to find the couple – setting up a website and a daily vlog as well as trawling the rivers and canals of England to hunt them down. As the days drawl by, Zac’s efforts dwindle into desperation as the case looks harder and harder to solve.
Prominent at this year’s East End Film Festival. The Darkest Universe is certainly a brilliant film that you should invest in. What do you think?
The Darkest Universe hits cinemas 4th November!
