After going down the unimaginably bleak path of The Road, Let Me In star Kodi Smit-McPhee looks to be traveling a far creepier, unsettling one with Dead Europe. Set to premiere at TIFF tomorrow, Australian director Tony Krawitz‘s drama follows a man (Ewen Leslie) who finds out dark secrets about his family while taking his father’s ashes from Australia to Greece.
The first trailer is a bit unfocused as to what’s its actually going for, but it presents a well-photographed intriguing atmosphere. It should at the very least be a unique option on TIFF’s massive line-up. Check it out below thanks to The Playlist, along with some stills for the film also starring The Debt‘s Marton Csokas, Jean-Francois Balmer, Igal Naor, William Zappa and Francoise Lebrun.
Following the death of his father, Isaac takes the ashes back to his father’s birthplace in Greece where he finds himself on the trail of a buried family secret that draws him deeper into the underbelly of contemporary Europe and threatens to tear his family apart.
Dead Europe premieres at TIFF but has no US distribution yet.
