Writer-director Maeve Murphy’s comedy-caper Taking Stock sees Kelly Brook play an out of work actress who, sick of rejection and mounting bills, evokes her inner Bonnie Parker in a plot to rob her former employer.
Having recently won four awards at the 2015 Monaco International Film Festival including the coveted Independent Spirit Award, UK audiences will get a chance to catch up with Maeve Murphy’s comic-caper Taking Stock from February 5.
Based on Murphy’s award-winning short film Sushi, Taking Stock is described as a Bonnie and Clyde-inspired escapade in London where a girl, having hit rock bottom, “seizes control of her destiny by bringing out her inner bad girl”.
Murphy said: “I’m delighted that Taking Stock is being released [in cinemas]. As it’s an independent film, we of course had a lot of obstacles, so this is great news. I hope people will enjoy – Kelly shines and Taking Stock is essentially a fun film with indie joy, which shows in a light-hearted way [the] current dilemmas of young people in the UK.”
Taking Stock arrives in UK cinemas Feb 5.
