Back in September a few of us around here were lucky enough to attend the Toronto International Film Festival. Still luckier were those of us who managed to catch one of these hidden gems that for some unfathomable reason didn’t seem to get a whole lot of buzz or chatter going on. The Disappearance of Alice Creed (Andrew’s review) was a treat of the highest caliber goodness.
Going in to this film with as little information as possible is really important. While I’d almost say that there shouldn’t even be a trailer at all, obviously there has to be some bit of marketing. Thankfully Anchor Bay and filmmakers know how to keep things fairly tight under wraps and only give you just a taste of what’s in store for you here.
The chemistry between the two leads (Marsan and Compston) is magnificent and I had the chance to meet both of them and can confirm their graciousness and friendly demeanor. Two nicer guys, happy as hell to have fans and talk with them I’ve never met. Trust me, you’ll want to see this one when it gets out. Those who have seen it can confirm. Best of indie thrillers is personified right here…
