21 June 2022
Writer/Director Malachi Smyth brings his directorial feature debut THE SCORE to UK cinemas on September 9th courtesy of Republic Film Distribution. A character driven genre-bending musical heist inspired by traditional Hollywood gangster movies and the French New Wave, the film centres around two amateur criminals who are hoping their next mission ‘THE SCORE’ will change the men’s lives for good. THE SCORE is produced by Matthew James Wilkinson and Ben Pullen with executive producers Nick Angel and Johnny Flynn.
Starring Johnny Flynn (STARDUST, BEAST), Will Poulter (MIDSOMMAR, DETROIT), Naomi Ackie (STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKY WALKER, LADY MACBETH) and Lydia Wilson (STAR TREK BEYOND, ABOUT TIME). THE SCORE combines Smyth’s unique script with songs written and performed by Johnny Flynn alongside other cast members, (as new recordings for the film), making for a bold and refreshing watch set to intrigue arthouse film, crime thriller and Flynn fans alike.
Two small time crooks, MIKE (Johnny Flynn) and TROY (Will Poulter), are on a mission – the ‘score’ – that they both expect will transform their circumstances. At a roadside café, as they wait for a hand-over, Troy falls in love with the waitress, GLORIA (Naomi Ackie), and begins to question his life choices, while the threat of real danger is driving to meet them.
THE SCORE will open in UK cinemas on 9 September. The soundtrack to the film will be released via EMI, details coming soon.
