“When British and alcohol are involved, there’s always ups and downs,” says Happy New Year, Colin Burstead cast member Sam Riley.

Colin Burstead just received nominations for Best Editing at this year’s British Independent Film Awards and Best Film at the London Film Festival!
The film based around an awkward family gathering of the Bursteads stars Neil Maskell (King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, “Humans“) as Colin, Charles Dance (Underworld: Blood Wars, “Childhood’s End”) in a must-watch role, and more. Book tickets at Queen’s Film Theatre online.
