BAFTA long-listed, Edith starring Peter Mullan and Michelle Fairley explores the heartbreaking inevitability that is old age.
Edith is a short film written by Ray Robinson (Electricity) and directed by Christian Cooke (The Art of More, Ordeal by Innocence) about the loneliness of an elderly man, played by Peter Mullan (Tyrannosaur, Westworld).
I wrote the soundtrack for it, way back in 2016. Since then it's been doing an impressive run on the festival circuit, and made the BAFTA long-list. It is now available to view online for free via Vimeo.
"Christian Cooke’s sombre short film about an ageing man’s confrontation with great personal loss is a terrifically well orchestrated collection of talented people hitting the ball out of the park with their contributions across the board, and is an emotionally stirring 15 minutes of cinema that has enough about it to move even the most hardened of film goers."
