Gwen (Trine Dyrholm) feels like it is always 1999. She sees a face in the mirror that is unfamiliar and her partner is unrecognisable to her despite being together every day. Joe (Celyn Jones) feels like his life is coming undone and his partner, Sarah, fears all will be forgotten. A compelling and emotionally charged drama, The Almond and the Seahorse chronicles the impact of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) on sufferers and their relatives.
Tracking the emotional afterburn of a traumatic event, the narrative offers a touching, poignant and deeply rich story of humility and dedication. It asks the question, what happens when you are ambushed by time as your memories begin to delete and relationships begin to disintegrate?
Co-directed by Celyn Jones and Tom Stern and written by Jones and Kaite O’Reilly, based on O’Reilly’s 2008 stage play of the same name, The Almond and the Seahorse also stars Australia’s own Rebel Wilson along with Meera Syal and Charlotte Gainsbourg in a supporting role.
Filmed across Liverpool and North Wales, this humble drama maps the human condition with a heart rendering honesty.
