There’s already been a few glorious trailers this year, and we’re just midway through January, but I already think Out Of Blue has a wonderfully ethereal escapism running through its very veins. Directed by Carol Morley (Dreams Of A Life, The Falling) and starring Patricia Clarkson, who I think has had an exceptional last few years, the film is based on Martin Amis’ 1997 novel Night Train.
When homicide detective Mike Hoolihan (Clarkson) is called to investigate the murder of a leading astrophysicist in New Orleans, she is confronted by a mystery that begins to affect her in ways she had never expected. As the investigation deepens, a darker world is slowly revealed and she must use all her skills and experience to piece together fragments of a wider conspiracy that lies behind the murder.
Described as a “stylish, neo-noir murder mystery”, Out of Blue also stars James Caan, Jacki Weaver and Toby Jones. Watch the top trailer right here for the film that comes to UK and Irish cinemas on 29 March:
