A sudden bereavement throws Luke, a fiercely independent young man with Down syndrome, into a daunting new environment where he finds unexpected support from his feisty, streetwise carer and a local heir dealing with his own demons. As friendships bloom and long-buried secrets are revealed, Luke verges dangerously close to disaster. My Feral Heart is a beautifully realised, understated character study bolstered by strong performances, distinctive cinematography and a deeply evocative score.
My Feral Heart is the multi-award winning, BIFA nominated, NFA and IARA winning debut from Jane Gull, produced by Rum Jam Films with the score composed by Barrington Pheloung (Truly, Madly, Deeply, Morse and Hilary and Jackie). It’s been dubbed ‘the small British indie with a mighty heart that everyone is talking about’ after it garnered terrific critical notices and became a cinema-on demand sensation.
The amazing cast includes Steven Brandon, Shana Swash, Will Rastall, Pixie Le Knot, Eileen Pollock and Suzanna Hamilton. This is one of only a few films to cast an actor with a disability in a lead role. Steven’s impressive debut as Luke has already won him 3 Best Actor awards including at the National Film Awards UK 2017, 2 BIFA nominations, and universal praise from film critics. The film boasts impressive performances from actresses on the rise: National Film Award Nominee and EastEnders favourite Shana Swash, and the UK’s leading contortionist Pixie Le Knot.
My Feral Heart is a poignant film championing the hashtag #NotSoDifferent. Mark Kermode in fact defied ‘anyone to not be won over by it’ whilst also awarding it his DVD of the week. With **** from the Financial Times, The Observer, Cinevue and Movie Review World, it is a much loved, spell-binding film.
