Amelia and Michael

A married couple appear to have all the trappings of wealth, success and happiness, but both Amelia and Michael have secrets from each other. Through a series of twists the film asks: what is it to be faithful to another person? And what does it mean to be true to yourself?

Soho Films part funded this beautifully crafted début from the director Daniel Cormack starring Anthony Head and Natasha Powell. Shot on anamorphic 35mm and featuring Dolby Digital surround sound, the stunning end result is all the more remarkable because it was achieved by a director who was completely new to the film industry and because the film was funded independently of the UK Film Council, the usual source of short film funding in the UK.
