Tyrannosaur - Preview


Preview by Jack Foley

A powerful and affecting drama, Tyrannosaur follows the story of two lonely, damaged people brought together by circumstance.

Joseph (Peter Mullan) is an unemployed widower, drinker, and a man crippled by his own volatile temperament and furious anger. Hannah (Olivia Colman) is a Christian worker at a charity shop, a respectable woman who appears wholesome and happy.

When the pair are brought together, Hannah appears as Joseph’s potential saviour, someone who can temper his fury and offer him warmth, kindness and acceptance.

As their story develops Hannah’s own secrets are revealed – her relationship with husband James (Eddie Marsan) is violent and abusive – and as events spiral out of control, Joseph becomes her source of succour and comfort.

A gripping drama, defined by powerhouse performances and a deeply affecting story, Tyrannosaur is written and directed by Paddy Considine, and produced by Diarmid Scrimshaw.

Tyrannosaur is the debut feature film from award winning actor Paddy Considine (Dead Man’s Shoes).

Tyrannosaur has won over 20 awards to date including four BIFA’s, three at the Sundance film festival and two at the Dinard film festival.

Extras include ‘The Making of Tyrannosaur’ Booklet, audio commentary with director Paddy Considine, dog altogether short, deleted scenes, a stills gallery and the trailer.
