BOY IN THE BACK SEAT

SHORT FILM- COMING SOON

WRITTEN & DIRECTED BY SCOTT PICKUP / PRODUCED BY JONNY ROSS, SIMON MARRIOT & JAMES OWEN

It’s 1984- A young boy is left all alone & locked inside a car (mint condition Ford Capri Mark II) as his dad takes care of some ‘business’ inside a menacingly unpleasant local pub.

Whilst alone our hero breaks all his father’s rules & dives headfirst into a fantasy world of mayhem & fun- desperate to keep his reality at bay. This doesn't last for long though. His brief escape is continually punctured by reminders of impending danger, what his father is really doing inside the pub & the final realisation that he's been all but forgotten.

Boy in the Back Seat is a nostalgic look back at a problem that burns just as brightly today. It’s a bold, edgy, funny & vibrant film about toxic masculinity, how we pass on our damage & the price we pay for our failures.
