MEREDITH (35, intelligent, focused, physician) struggles with her family’s problems, and is on the vergeof potentially leaving her husband, JACK (50, brash, controlling, addicted to work and alcohol). Her stepdaughter, CORAL (17, artsy, witty and rebellious), wants to travel and break free from her parents. While on a weekend sailing trip to try to mend the family, they collide with a makeshift lifeboat out at sea. From the debris, they rescue the DRIFTER (30’s, an enigmatic and imposing stranger), who is badly injured and in need of help. Once aboard, the Drifter manipulates them and takes control of the boat, leaving the family in grave danger. A life or death battle unfolds, testing the bonds of the family and their will to survive.
DARK SEA draws inspiration from films like DEAD CALM, THE TALENTED MR. RIPLEY, and PANIC ROOM, with their limited and claustrophobic locations, psychological intensity, and the distrust of ‘the other’. It explores themes such as the complexity of the modern family, fear of the unknown, the depth of love and the will to survive.A slow dread builds forcing the question, how much would you sacrifice in order to protect the ones you love,and where does the real danger lie?
The Indifference LeagueSex vs Love. Religion vs Atheism. Left vs Right. Right vs Wrong. Can anyone be a hero when the divisions are so extreme?
SYNOPSIS:Beneath the surface of a lake, the body of thirty-year-old Mr. Nice Guy sinks deeper below the surface of the water. Then his eyes snap open.
We flash back to the beginning of the long weekend, when Mr. Nice Guy gathers his friends The Indifference League, who gave each other “anti-superhero” nicknames in high school to poke fun at each of their dominant personality traits.
In the style of The Avengers, the members of The Indifference League are introduced one at a time. We meet Miss Demeanor in a gay cabaret club, where Mr. Nice Guy (who has a long-standing Crush on Miss D.) discovers that she is a lesbian. We are then introduced to The Statistician, a mathematics professor trapped in an intimacy-free marriage. We meet The Drifter, The Statistician’s hapless, globe-trotting younger brother, and his new love interest The Stunner, who turns out to be the student that The Statistician has just had an affair with. Next comes Hippie Avenger, who shuns battery-operated devices like cell phones and iPods, but cherishes her vibrator, The Purple Pal.
When they all arrive at Mr. Nice Guy’s cottage, along with SuperKen and SuperBarbie, the high school Prom King and Queen who’ve become extreme right-wing born-again Christians, the stage is set for a series of super-battles, on the beach, in the bedrooms, and during an epic rainy-night game of Monopoly. Secrets will be revealed. Alliances will shift. Relationships will be betrayed.
And the life of Mr. Nice Guy will depend on the outcome.
