KELLY+VICTOR

Kelly+Victor is a haunting, candid depiction of a young couple embarking on a passionate and transgressive love affair, from the acclaimed novel by Niall Griffiths. The film is set against the backdrop of a highly cinematic Liverpool, to a searing soundtrack featuring music by a host of acclaimed artists including the Mercury Music Prize-nominated artists King Creosote & Jon Hopkins and Wild Beasts as well as the gifted guitar work of Bill Ryder-Jones (ex-The Coral).
.
When Kelly (Antonia Campbell-Hughes – ‘Bright Star’) meets Victor (Julian Morris – ‘24’, ‘Once Upon a Time’) on the dance floor of a Liverpool nightclub, the attraction is instant. After wandering through the night they find themselves at her flat, making love with a passion and urgency that neither had experienced before. Both Kelly and Victor are struggling to get by as best they can, while the people around them are choosing illegal lifestyles; she is escaping a brutish former lover, while he is being dragged into a world of drugs.  It’s when they make love that their darker instincts take over.

Directed by Kieran Evans, Kelly+Victor is a devastating story of obsessive love anchored by two complex but tender performances.
