FANATIC is the thrilling story of two IRA men brought together by fate and happenstance with the singular task of setting off a bomb outside Wembley Stadium during the Euro ’96 England v Germany match.
Inspired by the darkness and absurdity of Fargo and The Pillowman, and the looming threat and tension in The Lives Of Others and Locke, FANATIC takes a human nature on a thrilling ride through an extreme situation – a unique and entertaining film that makes you wonder if what didn’t happen is almost as important as what did. Written by acclaimed playwright PADDY CAMPBELL, FANATIC will be the break-out feature for director RACHNA SURI.
