The latest feature from Ben Wheatley (Kill List, Sightseers) is a genre bending romp set during the English Civil War.
A small group of deserters flee from a raging battle through an overgrown field and they are soon captured by two men: O’Neil and Cutler. O’Neil, an alchemist, forces the group to aid him in his search to find a hidden treasure that he believes is buried in the field.
Crossing a vast mushroom circle, which provides their first meal, the group quickly descend into a chaos of arguments, fighting and paranoia, and, as it becomes clear that the treasure might be something other than gold, they slowly become victim to the terrifying energies trapped inside the field.
A satellite Q&A with Ben Wheatley and members of the cast, will be broadcast live from the Ritzy in Brixton after the 18:30 screening on Fri 5 July. Book for this special screening here.
