Premiering Saturday night at South By Southwest is Citadel, from director Ciaran Foy. Today, we landed a look at the poster and the trailer.
Based on director Foys real life experiences with being violently attacked and his subsequent life as an agoraphobic, Citadel is a very personal journey. The dilapidated suburbia of Edenstown casts a shadow over Tommy Cowleys life. Trapped there by his agoraphobia since his wife was fatally attacked by twisted feral children, he nowfinds himself terrorized by the same mysterious hooded gang, who seem intent on taking his baby daughter. Torn between the help of an understanding nurse and a vigilante priest, he discovers that tobe free of his fears, he must finally face the demons of his past and enter the one place that he fears the most the abandoned tower block known as the Citadel.
The film stars Aneurin Barnard, Wunmi Mosaku and James Cosmo. You’ll find the trailer inside.
