We’ve been sent the trailer for Clone starring Matt Smith and Eva Green. Amazingly it’s Matt Smith’s debut feature film appearance, I guess the gruelling TV schedule’s been keeping him busy.
The worlds best-loved time traveller finds himself in an alternative universe, very similar to Earth as we know it, except that human cloning is possible and widely used. However these ‘copies’ are considered to be second-class citizens and although identical in every way are ostracised by the ‘originals’ in society.
Young Rebecca (Ruby O’Fee) and Tommy (Tristan Christopher) meet as children and strike up a friendship. There is an instant bond but all too soon Rebecca has to leave when her Mother gets a job in Tokyo. Fast-forward 12 years, and the grown-up Rebecca (Eva Green) returns to look for Tommy (Matt Smith). When she finds him, the mutual attraction is still there but a tragic accident soon cuts short their budding romance.
Rather than accept that Tommy is gone, Rebecca decided to bring him back but the only way she can do it is to conceive and give birth to his genetic copy
As Tommy grows up, the mother/son relationship grows increasingly complex. Rebecca tries to keep his origins secret but how long will she be able to hide the truth? Can she protect him from prejudice against ‘copies’? How will she explain away the confusing urges that Tommy doesn’t understand? Chilling answers unravel as Rebecca deals with the consequences of her decision to never let go.
Originally called “Womb” Clone looks to be a tense psychological drama wrapped in a sci-fi premise. Directed by Benedek Fliegauf it also stars Lesley Manville, Peter Wight, Istvan Lenart, Hannah Murray and Natalie Tena.
Thank you for visiting us over the years. There has been sweat, there have been tears, there have been lots of coffees drunk and lots and lots of words written. It's been a wonderful adventure but as you can probably tell from the lack of updates, CultHub is closing and these pages will soon disappear to...wherever websites go to when they move on.
