Tim Roth in Sundown
Only a few thespians can pull off the acting feat of starring in a narrative feature film that offers minimum dialogue. For Tim Roth, the accomplished veteran actor pulled off the dramatic feat in Michel Franco’s film Sundown.
The film features a British man who stayed behind in Acapulco, Mexico to leave his family in order to proceed towards a new chapter of his life.
The film also stars Charlotte Gainsbourg, Iazua Larios, Henry Goodman, Albertine Kotting McMillan, and Samuel Bottomley.
Here is the official synopsis of Sundown:
Neil and Alice Bennett (Tim Roth, Charlotte Gainsbourg) are the core of a wealthy family on vacation in Mexico with younger members Colin and Alexa (Samuel Bottomley, Albertine Kotting McMillan) until a distant emergency cuts their trip short. When one relative disrupts the family’s tight-knit order, simmering tensions rise to the fore in this suspenseful jolt from writer/director Michel Franco.
