Two For Joy – World Premiere

Two for Joy starring Daniel Mays, Billie Piper, and Samantha Morton premiered last evening at the 72nd Annual Edinburgh Film Fest. We are already hearing great things from the premiere screening!

Two For Joy –

Vi has been forced to grow up fast; mother-daughter roles are reversed, Vi is Aisha’s carer as well as trying to control her rascal younger brother Troy, who with no father figure and a struggling mother, is a law unto himself – something must give, the situation must change.

TWO FOR JOY has been conceived and developed over the last six years through a series of short films and photo projects by Tom Beard. It’ll be a bold, unique and distinct departure from your classical social-realist film, while un-voyeuristically exploring and bringing into the public eye the consequence of some serious, British, topical themes that are often short-changed by the government, and under-represented on our screens.

Daniel Mays stars as Lias.

A wider release of the film is expected but look for it on the 2018 film fest circuit.
