Immersive sci-fi movie Vesper is released in the UK today, Friday 21st October. The film, from Signature Entertainment, is available in selected cinemas nationwide as well as on digital platforms. The film 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 Vesper's 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.
Richard Brake is available for voiceovers from Anthea Represents. Click his image for his profile page and voiceover showreel.
