Hannah Murray, Josh O’Connor, Adrian Rawlins, Patricia Potter, Nia Roberts and Steven Waddington star; here’s the synopsis and background: “BRIDGEND follows Sara and her dad Dave as they arrive to a small village in Bridgend County. The village is haunted by suicides by its young inhabitants, and Sara falls dangerously in love with one of the teenagers as the town’s new policeman tries to stop the mysterious chain of suicides.
“The film is based on a mysterious suicide cluster that took place in Bridgend County, a small former coal-mining province in Wales. Between December 2007 and January 2012, 79 suicides were officially committed in the area. Most of the victims were teenagers, who hanged themselves and left no suicide notes. Danish documentary filmmaker Rønde followed the teenagers from the area for six years and wrote the script based on their life stories.” See the trailer below the poster, and the movie’s page at Cinema Village’s website here.
