Vesper is an "immersive and powerful" sci-fi thriller about a 13 year old girl who is struggling to survive with her father Darius after the earth's ecosystem collapses, leaving a strange apocalyptic world behind. Richard Brake stars as her ailing, paralysed father, Darius, who communicates with her through a drone that acts as a mechanical vessel for his mind and voice and allows him to accompany Vesper on her exploits. .
The film has received early praise from critics with Variety calling it "a dazzling and strikingly designed futuristic fairytale" and The Playlist declaring it as "exceptional". Polygon says "Vesper is a rich pleasure: a familiar enough story, but told with a thousand creepy, vibrant, crawling grace notes".
The film also stars Raffiella Chapman as Vesper and Eddie Marsan as Jonas, Darius's dangerously predatory brother.
The film is released in cinemas in the US today, Friday 30th September. UK release is set for 21st October for both on-demand and cinemas.
