Finally Ben Wheatley’s critically acclaimed film A Field In England is getting it’s US theatrical release. In a film Martin Scorsese has called "a most original and stunning cinematic experience." A Field Of England was one of the most talked about films of 2013’s festival runs. Well now you get your chance to see it on your on demand video service or possibly a local theater near you.
In conjunction with the premiere acclaimed artist Jay Shaw has created a new one sheet for it’s release. Wheatley has been high on my list since seeing Kill List and Sightseers was pretty epic as well. I do have the film in my possession so look for a review later this week. For now enjoy the cool new one sheet and some brand new images courtesy of Drafthouse Films.
During the Civil War in 17th-Century England, a small group of deserters flee from a raging battle through an overgrown field. They are captured by an alchemist (Michael Smiley), who forces the group to aid him in his search to find a hidden treasure that he believes is buried in the field. Crossing a vast mushroom circle, which provides their first meal, the group quickly descends into a chaos of arguments, fighting and paranoia, and, as it becomes clear that the treasure might be something other than gold, they slowly become victim to the terrifying energies trapped inside the field. A Field In England is a psychedelic trip into magic and madness from Ben Wheatley, the award-winning director of Down Terrace, Kill List and Sightseers.
