HAIL

Posted by Michael Avery

After being released from prison eight years ago Danny P. Jones had a choice: pick up rubbish or join a theatre group for past inmates. He chose the latter.

The group was called Plan B Theatre Company. At the time filmmaker Amiel Courtin-Wilson was documenting the group and was struck by the the presence of the freshly released prisoner, sparking a long term collaboration between the two.

HAIL, a blend between fiction and doco is a brutal story. After leaving prison Danny is reunited with long term partner Leanne. Struggling with the life of a former criminal, Danny finds himself slipping back into the world of crime. When Leanne, Danny’s last anchor of stability, is unforgivably taken away, he has nothing to live for except revenge.

A cast of untrained actors means HAIL boils with a savagely authentic air – Danny P Jones and Leanne Letch do a better, more brutal job playing themselves than any actor could.

With a strictly limited season, check it out while you can. Below is an interview we recently did with director Amiel Courtin-Wilson.

HAIL is showing at Cinema Nova from Oct 25 www.hailmovie.com.
