Elfie Hopkins - Preview
Preview by Jack Foley
JAIME Winstone (Made in Dagenham, Kidulthood) is Elfie Hopkins – an animal-loving slacker, stoner, and wannabe detective, living in a sleepy hunting village.
Haunted by the death of her mother, Elfie seeks solace from the old school detectives in The Maltese Falcon and Chinatown.
She entertains herself by investigating the villagers and upsetting everyone with her imaginative allegations.
Things get serious, however, with the arrival of trendy city dwellers, the Gammons, who weave seductive tales of adventure and entice the villagers with offers of exotic hunting holidays around the world. Elfie smells a rat – her mundane existence is about to be blown apart.
Blood quickly starts to spill, and it’s no longer just the blood of animals. Elfie discovers the villagers are disappearing and when she finally uncovers the truth, it’s darker than she could ever have imagined…
Also starring Aneurin Barnard (We’ll Take Manhattan), Rupert Evans (Hellboy), Steven Mackintosh (Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels) and British acting legend Ray Winstone (Sexy Beast, Snow White & the Huntsman), Elfie Hopkins comes to DVD & Blu-ray on August 13 with a host of extras including a Making Of documentary, deleted scenes and original short “Little Munchkin” directed by Ryan Andrews.
