Don't be Timid

Robert Carlyle is one of our favourite Actors, an unsung hero in our opinion. This film looks to put him back where he belongs, his performance is astounding. Those familiar with Trainspotting and The Full Monty will appreciate this performance equally well, and those of you who have only just become party to the Robert Carlyle performance through the hit TV series “Once upon a time” (Mr Gold/Rumpelstiltskin is a formidable character), we think you will enjoy this to.

Anticipated release in the USA is the end of November, when we hear more we will definitely let you know.

Movie Synopsis

LACHLAN MacALDONICH (Robert Carlyle) is former Britpop rocker who has settled into a comfortably numb existence in farm country just outside Los Angeles. By day, he works on an organic farm and travels regularly to the city’s farmers’ markets to sell produce. By night, he retreats to his crummy apartment to record “Flame-Outs,” his podcast that recounts the tragic deaths of great musicians. The only spark in his humdrum existence is BEAU (Alexia Rasmussen), a lovely struggling actress and amateur chef who frequents the Silver Lake farmers’ market.

One night, Lachlan gets pulled over for a DUI, a charge that dredges up his past drug offense and threatens him with deportation. Lachlan’s only hope of staying in the U.S. is proving that his removal would cause “extreme hardship” to a U.S. citizen spouse or relative. Lachlan contacts his estranged ex-wife and daughter, raising past demons that he must finally confront.
