Everyone loves Joe Ridley, except Joe. Dark, crushing depression envelops him and a childhood trauma haunts him. Elly loves him but he is pushing her away. Can he save himself before he loses everything?
Joe Ridley is the life and soul of the party, every party. Loved by all and in seemingly in love with life he leads a rock and roll lifestyle. But underneath it all, beneath his skin and buried in his mind is a dark, destructive depression fogging his very existence. When he meets Elly, they fall in love and all seems well on the surface. But as his fears begin to bubble to the surface their relationship begins to suffer and with it is his mental health.Written by
The production had to be briefly halted when the Director of Photography, Mark Nutkins, dropped a 25kg weight on his foot and had to be taken to hospital by the 3rd AD, Chris Malin. Mark returned to the shoot a couple of hours later, despite a broken toe, and saw out the remainder of the shoot. See more »
You shouldn't just be with someone you love. Or someone who loves you. But someone who loves like you love

The acting is terrible and the camera work gave me motion sickness. The characters, all completely unlikeable, didn't appeal at all so was unable to feel any empathy. The 'funny' bits just aren't funny but truly irritating. The only positive to be taken from it if I'm being very generous is that it attempts to put the subject of depression in young men under a spotlight, so admirable intentions at least. Unfortunately it comes off like a very ambitious sixth form/university project.
