Comes a Bright Day movie scene

Craig Roberts is hurting for Imogen Poots in Comes A Bright Day.

The hip ensemble of Craig Roberts (Submarine), Kevin McKidd (HBO’s Rome), Timothy Spall (Wake Wood) and the adorable Imogen Poots (Jane Eyre) stars in the offbeat British romance-thriller film Comes A Bright Day, written and directed by Simon Aboud.

Sam (Roberts) is a bright, ambitious and handsome bellboy at a five star hotel who has big dreams of one day running his own restaurant. On a seemingly ordinary afternoon, while running an errand at one of London’s most exclusive jewelers, he suddenly finds himself in a life or death hostage situation with the radiantly beautiful Mary (Poots) and her belligerent elderly boss Charlie (Spall). Against the backdrop of an armed jewel robbery that goes badly wrong, hostages Sam and Mary, flung together by deadly circumstance, discover their true feelings for each other.

Written and directed by Simon Aboud and based on his own 2008 short film of the same name, the unrated Comes A Bright Day had a limited run in theaters in the UK and Russia but was never exhibited in the U.S. The movie’s DVD release represents its commercial premiere on this side of the pond.

There are no bonus features on the DVD.
