Rupert is a struggling actor, Rupert is struggling to find love, and Rupert is struggling to know who he is in bittersweet British drama Rupert, Rupert & Rupert, which is set for its world premiere this spring with a limited theatrical and digital release thanks to Substantial Films.
Respected Scottish actor Sandy Batchelor (Othello and The Captain of Kopenick - National Theatre) takes the lead in a jawdropping turn as a budding actor trying to navigate life with dissociative identity disorder (aka multiple personality disorder) that will have you laughing, crying, and hiding behind a cushion.
This rollercoaster ride follows budding actor Rupert Lindsay (Sandy Batchelor) who is desperate to get his big break in acting, but there's one slight problem: he keeps having angry and lascivious outbursts and he can never remember what he did, what he said or even who he hurt. A chance audition puts him in front of failed film director Geoffrey Morton (Ben Porter - Casualty, The Bill), whose last hope in the industry rests on finding a star who can effectively portray the lead in 'The Fatal Blasphemy of Jeremiah Ulysses’s Boundless Rage.'
Rupert, Rupert & Rupert arrives in cinemas 26 April 2019 and on digital Amazon Video, iTunes and GooglePlay. Try the trailer above.
