SUSPENSION OF DISBELIEF, a dark, erotic thriller from internationally acclaimed director Mike Figgis (Leaving Las Vegas, Internal Affairs), will be released by CONTENT On Download and On-Demand from September 6 and through Verve Pictures and Swipe Films on DVD for the first time from September 9.
In this sexy noir thriller, nothing is quite what it seems as both within and outside of the frame the line between fiction and reality is blurred.
Martin is a talented screenwriter and novelist currently going through a difficult patch in his career. Yet after the death of the mysterious and alluring Angelique and the arrival of her twin sister Therese, Martin’s world starts to change.
He finds himself torn between the similarities in this mystery to the disappearance of his wife 10 years ago (for which he is still a suspect), his daughter’s insecurities around her acting career and the intrigue surrounding Therese’s past.
The film stars SEBASTIAN KOCH (The Lives of Others, Black Book) and LOTTE VERBEEK as Martin and Therese/ Angelique and features the cream of British acting talent, including FRANCES DE LA TOUR (The History Boys, Harry Potter), JULIAN SANDS (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, Leaving Las Vegas) and EMILIA FOX.
