PATRICK (DE PATRICK) New Auteurs

PATRICK (DE PATRICK)

Talent attending: Kevin Janssens (Talent)

Patrick has lost his hammer (and also his father). Now left at the helm of the family business, a beautiful naturalist camp nestled in the Belgian forests, his stress is quickly multiplying. Between the tree-line and the river, the trailers and the road, there is a culprit, and Patrick discovers that everyone is a suspect. Kevin Janssens, clad in a boyish bowl-cut and not much else, carries the film in the title role, along with a colorful cast including Jemaine Clement (FLIGHT OF THE CONCORDS) as an arrogant rock star. Director Tim Mielants (PEAKY BLINDERS, LEGION) delivers a costumeless drama that, while revealing family secrets, affairs, political agendas, and violent outburst, is at its core a humorous and touching story about loss and grief. –Eric Moore

Tim Mielants directed two seasons of LEGION, created by Noah Hawley for FX, which was described as the best superhero show on TV by The Guardian. Tim also directed THE TERROR, AMC’s 2017 thriller set in the Arctic, the crime-drama THE TUNNEL and all 6 episodes of the third season of PEAKY BLINDERS. PATRICK, which he also wrote, is his feature debut.
