emilia jones stands in a field in Nuclear

Psychological thriller Nuclear arrives on digital 9th November

Two of Britain’s greatest young acting talents Emilia Jones and George MacKay star in this haunting psychological drama.

Grippingly tense, claustrophobic thriller Nuclear, the directorial debut from Cannes Un Certain Regard winning writer Catherine Linstrum, is set for its World Premiere at the prestigious Raindance Film Festival this October and is released digitally on 9 November 2020 courtesy of 101 Films.

Brutalised, traumatised teenager Emma (Emilia Jones) and her mother (Sienna Guillory) are on the run from a harrowing past. Seeking refuge in a remote village, she meets a mysterious boy (George MacKay) who may be more than he appears…

As Emma grows closer to him, fascinated by his obsession with the defunct nuclear power plant that poisons the lake water, she soon realises that in order to overcome her fears she must face them…including the toxic, terrifying past which is determined to catch up with her.

Nuclear was written by Catherine Linstrum with David J Newman, and was produced by Stella Nwimo through Ffilm Cymru's Cinematic scheme, financed through a partnership with the BFI, using National Lottery funding, S4C and Melville Media Limited, with additional support from Great Point Media, Fields Park Media Partners and Warner Music Supervision.
