We can now confirm that Fiona Neilson and Esther Douglas (producers) and Mat Whitecross (director) will all be attending for a Q&A session after the film, plus co-writer Paul Viragh!
Frank (Ray Winstone) is confined to a residential home, stricken with Alzheimer's, past, present and future steadily disintegrating. Then, one day, James (Jim Sturgess) appears, wanting to reconnect with a father who no longer knows him. James springs Frank from the home, and the pair go on the run. As their haphazard journey unfolds – funny, violent and tragic by turns – the present merges with imperfect memories of the past, and fact with fiction, and we begin to realise that nothing is quite what it seems. Director of ROAD TO GUANTANAMO, THE SHOCK DOCTRINE, and Ian Dury biopic SEX & DRUGS & ROCK & ROLL, Whitecross – a graduate of Revolution Films – follows in mentor Michael Winterbottom's eclectic footsteps by tackling yet another new genre. But ASHES itself defies neat categorisation; part road movie, part psychological thriller, part contemporary film noir, but all beautifully shot, and with a grimly satisfying twist.
