WHAT’S IT ABOUT?
Micky Mason (Herdman) is a working-class manual labourer who, after being made redundant at his current job, finds himself in a series of menial zero-hours roles. He soon takes a course of action that is wildly against his character, but is also the only way to keep his family afloat…
IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?
A small but powerful film about the struggling working class that Ken Loach would be proud of, Sink is a stark directorial debut from Mark Gillis which also has the involvement of Oscar-winning actor Mark Rylance on board as an associate producer.
