Vertigo Releasing is proud to present SURGE, the first feature film from Aneil Karia (Beat, The Long Goodbye) starring BAFTA award winning actor Ben Whishaw (The Personal History of David Copperfield, Paddington, the James Bond franchise). Surge will be released in the UK and Ireland in cinemas and on digital platforms from 28th May 2021.
Joseph (Whishaw) is trapped in a soulless job, living a life devoid of emotion and meaning. After an impulsive act of rebellion, Joseph unleashes a wilder version of himself. He is propelled on a reckless journey through London, ultimately experiencing what it feels like to be alive.
Karia says of his protagonist, “Though Joseph might seem to be a unique case, I hope that his story is speaking to something much more universal. Now more than ever it feels like we have had enough of surface-existence and are yearning for a deeper more present experience of the world. I hope watching this film feels like a visceral and meaningful trip.”
SURGE is a powerful must-see thriller showcasing a transformative, groundbreaking performance from Ben Whishaw and will be releasing in the UK and Ireland from 28th May 2021, in cinemas and on digital platforms.
