“One of my favorite cinematic experiences of recent years… [Ridley’s] great unsung work.” - Mark Kermode, Kermode Uncut
Darkly Noon is the sole survivor of a military-style attack on an isolated religious community. Stumbling through the forest in a daze, he is rescued by the free-spirited Callie. Darkly finds himself feeling strange new desires as she nurses him back to health… only to watch her jump into the arms of her returning mute lover Clay. Lost in the woods with only his fundamentalist upbringing to make sense of his unrequited passions, Darkly soon descends into an explosive lethal rage in this surreal thriller about desire, obsession and betrayal.
Phillip Ridley’s (THE REFLECTING SKIN) backwoods religious allegory has been resurrected for theaters with a beautiful 2k scan from the original camera negative.
