Garnering critical acclaim on its theatrical release, one of Britain’s greatest actors of today, Toby Jones, ‘glows’ (The Guardian) as the lead in Kaleidoscope, a bleak, nightmarish psychological thriller written and directed by brother Rupert Jones in his feature film debut.

This intense thriller 'adds a decidedly 21st century bent to Hitchcockian suspense' (Spectrum Culture) and is set to arrive on UK digital platforms on 12 August 2019, followed by its DVD release on 23 September 2019 by Sparky Pictures. The cast includes Sinead Matthews (Jellyfish), Cecilia Noble (Danny and the Human Zoo) and a stand out turn from national treasure Anna Reid (Last Tango in Halifax). 

A sparse, drab flat, on a housing estate in London, loud frantic knocking and a dog barking.  We meet Carl Woods (Toby Jones – Don’t Forget the DriverDetectoristsTinker Tailor, Soldier Spy), an ex-prisoner with dreams of starting a gardening business, as he’s abruptly awoken from his sleep on the sofa.  He goes to the door...no-one is there. Exploring the house, he notices lipstick traces on a glass, an ashtray full of cigarette butts,  he goes upstairs and finds a shocking discovery, a dead body in the bathroom. But is everything as it seems?

As the narrative twists and turns we follow Carl’s footsteps as he chats with his neighbour Monique (Noble)prepares for his first date in 15 years with someone he met online, Abby (Matthews) and gets a message announcing an impending, unwanted visit from his overbearing mother (Reid). With time running out, Carl’s relationship with his mother and the ramifications of his night with Abby now collide in dramatic, surprising, unforgettable ways.

No special features have been listed for the DVD release, so here's a trailer:
