Director: Leon Lopez
Premiere type: World
Running time: 84min
Twenty-two year old David has it all – he’s young, attractive and has just gotten into a prestigious dance school. But he’s also been sleeping with his sister’s husband Jules for two years, and is beginning to feel the strain. Throwing himself into a one-night stand with Sam, he soon ends up in another intense relationship. Except this one is allowed to be public, a fact that slowly drives Jules into the depths of jealousy and frustration. When David and Sam come over for dinner, matters will come to a head. And nothing will be the same again. The directorial debut from former soap star Leon Lopez, Soft Lad is a mightily impressive low-budget feature boasting a host of familiar faces: a taught, intelligent tale of lust and jealousy in contemporary Liverpool.
Followed by a Q&A. Tickets available from the Genesis Cinema website HERE.
