Burdened with an unspeakable tragedy in New York City, Adrian looks to reconnect with his teen brother Andrew (Aidan Langford) while navigating his relationship with religious parents Eileen (Virginia Madsen) and Dale (Michael Chiklis). When he reaches out to his estranged childhood friend Carly (Jamie Chung), their unresolved issues force Adrian to confront an uncertain future that will significantly alter the lives of those around him.

Beautifully shot on black-and-white 16mm film, 1985 takes a unique look at a pivotal moment in American history through the prism of empathy, love and family.  M in cinemas from April 25

“a beautifully acted film…” The Guardian

“The dark inky frames are full of shadows and dread. Yet the narrative, and Adrian’s journey, is always leavened with quiet compassion.”  – The Times (UK)

“This is a realistic, discreet, yet exploratory film that earns its tears honestly and scrupulously.” – The Wrap
