Even though our team at the Sundance Film Festival really wanted to make room in the schedule to see “Glassland,” it just couldn’t be managed. But perhaps we all should’ve tried a bit harder. The drama features a terrific trio of leads in what looks like a potent, raw drama that hits all the emotional buttons. And a new trailer for the film is here.
Written and directed by Gerard Barrett, and starring Jack Reynor, Will Poulter, and Toni Collette, the story follows a young taxi driver, dabbling with the criminal underworld, who tries to save his mother who is in the throes of a crippling alcohol addiction. It’s not the sunniest walk through the park, but it looks like a film that approaches its subject matter unflinchingly. And the performances appear to be top notch as well, with Reynor leaving Park City with the World Cinema Dramatic acting award.
No U.S. release date yet, but the picture opens in the U.K. on April 17th. Watch below.
