Recently released from prison, Mark attempts to reconnect with his daughter and hopes to give her a Christmas to remember. Struggling to find work, he meets Alan, his former cell-mate, who encourages him to return to a life of crime. A decision made easier when Caddy, a ruthless crime boss, blackmails him into doing one last job.
Commenting on the release, Peter Thompson, sales and acquisitions director at Lightbulb Film Distribution, said: “We’re thrilled to be bringing this truly independent film to British audiences. Silent Night is gritty, engaging and, above all, entertaining. It’s great to see the return of Frank Harper on our screens, and, in director Will Thorne, an emerging British filmmaker. Whether at the cinema or at home, we cannot wait for audiences to see Silent Night this December.”
Director Will Thorne added: “I love the ritual of watching Christmas movies, so I wanted to create something that was uniquely British, cinematic and entertaining in the hope people would want to return to it. All independent filmmaking is a labour of love, so I’m really excited to get Silent Night out there. After the year that we’ve all had, I’m pretty sure what we need right now is a South London hitman movie set at Christmas!”
Silent Night will be in UK CInemas from 11th December, on Digital Download from 14th December and on DVD from 28th December
