Psychological Drama ELYSE, Starring Anthony Hopkins, Set For Digital Release

Thunderbird Releasing has announced the UK release of psychological drama ELYSE, starring Lisa Pepper and Anthony Hopkins, on digital platforms on 31st May.

The directorial debut of Stella Hopkins, ELYSE features Anthony Hopkins, currently riding high after his Oscar win for The Father, as a doctor confronted with a difficult patient prone to violent mood-swings, played by Lisa Pepper (who appeared in alongside Hopkins in his directorial debut Slipstream).

Thought-provoking, disorientating and moving, and unafraid to venture into a subject matter too often ignored, ELYSE is a stylish and promising debut, and features a magnificently moody score composed by Anthony Hopkins himself. It’s a film that lingers in the mind long after the credits have rolled.

“What can I do for you? Why are you here?”

Elyse appears, on the surface, to have it all – a beautiful family, and enviable home, a charmed lifestyle. However, all is not what it seems, and her enviable existence starts to unravel. Institutionalised following a catastrophic accident, she is deeply traumatised and seemingly unreachable. Only the care from her doctor and the unconditional love from her nurse might lead to her recovery.

I love practical effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Yakuza Zero and Mafia III.
