Dimensions, a period drama/time travel film will debut at the Cambridge Film Festival in September. It features Henry Lloyd-Hughes and Camilla Rutherford among others.
It is the directorial debut of husband and wife directing duo, Ant Neely & Sloane U.Ren, who describe the film as "a cross between H.G. Wells. Time Machine and A Beautiful Mind".
Description from film's blog:
‘It’s dark in here. Pitch black. Silent. This is where it all began and where it all ends. Perhaps, though, it isn’t as simple as that. We see our lives, the moments from our birth to our death, as a straight line - never bending, never curving. Those are old ideas though and now it is time for you to discard them and imagine more. It’s time to open your eyes to the possibility that time isn’t a simple ruler, ticking off the moments between the beginning and the end. Time is a line, a loop, a tangle of threads, a sculpture of dazzling complexity.’
Stephen is a brilliant young boy who lives in England, in what appears to be the 1920s - but nothing in Stephen’s life is quite as it seems. His world is turned upside down upon meeting a charismatic and inspirational professor at a garden party, who demonstrates to Stephen and his friends what life would be like if they themselves were merely one, or two, dimensional beings. He then proceeds to explain that by manipulating other dimensions, time travel may actually be possible.
As Stephen’s life unfolds, events lead him to dedicate himself to turning the Professor’s theories of time travel into reality. Jealousy, love, obsession, temptation and greed surround him, influencing his fragile mind and the direction of his work.
