Wreckers (2011) Film


In Wreckers we can see Benedict as David, who seems to conceal a terrible secret from his wife – exciting!

Wreckers had its premiere on 16 December 2011. Director Dictynna Hood was nominated as Best British Newcomer at the London Film Festival and was nominated for the New Voices/New Visions Grand Jury award at the Palm Springs International Film Festival. At the International Film Festival in Moscow the film was awarded with the Silver St. George Award in the category Best Film of the Perspective Competition.

Newcomer Dictynna Hood knows how to captivate the audience, changing the line of action unexpectedly, leads astay – and  surprises with such an unexpected end, quite contrary to the beginning of the film.

In this thrilling story Benedict Cumberbatch plays mysterious David.

What is it about:
Dawn and David seem to have a perfect marriage. To crown their happiness, they return to David’s home village to start a family. But it does not work out as hoped with the fast pregnancy, moreover the building of their home stresses both of them more than expected. In this tense situation bursts David’s brother Nick with his unexpected visit. He messes up the pair’s life as he tells Dawn some secrets, she never heard about before – full of doubt she asks herself if she even knows the man who she is married to?
