The Universe Is Always Right

by Andrew MacGregor


Hayden Thorpe: “The Universe Is Always Right” - 4 mins 30s

This bucolic promo sees former Wild Beasts frontman Hayden Thorpe reborn in the Lake District. Found unconscious in the woods by a girl and her family, Thorpe is taken to their farm to recuperate. Once he discovers a fetching white suit in the attic, the cast fully embrace what they have in the Cumbrian countryside.

Those who swore never to revisit the countryside after Ben Wheatley’s 'In the Earth' will appreciate the change of pace here. Backed by Thorpe's yearning vocals and a lilting electronic soundscape, the film's rustic imagery and light mystery reward open-minded viewers. Just don't forget to bring your hayfever tablets with you.
