IFC Midnight is releasing Kaleidoscope in December and they are calling it an “intense,” and “twisty” thriller.
Starring Harry Potter and Jurassic World II’s Toby Jones and directed by his brother Rupert, the film follows Toby’s character Carl as he slips into madness, led there apparently by his controlling mother.
Here’s IFC Midnight’s official synopsis:
This intense, twisty thriller unfolds in the darkest corners of a man’s mind. Recently released from prison, mild-mannered Carl (Toby Jones) quietly attempts to move on with his life. Just as he embarks on his first date in 15 years, Carl’s fresh start is shattered by the sudden reappearance of his domineering mother (Anne Reid), whose presence awakens within him a deep-seated trauma. What unfolds is a brain-warping puzzle as reality and illusion, past and present collide and explode in violence. The debut feature from Rupert Jones is a provocative psychological mystery that asks: is it possible to escape our past?
Kaleidoscope is coming to select theaters, VOD, and via digital platforms in the U.S. on December 8, 2017.
