While his mother, Collette, battles addiction, Reynor finds himself pulled ever deeper into the criminal underworld to try and save her
Currently starring in the number one film in the country, “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” Jack Reynor takes on a much more subtle performance opposite Toni Collette in Gerard Barrett‘s “Glassland.”
Collette portrays Jean, a troubled woman who finds some light in the darkness through her relationship with her son, John, played by Reynor. He’s a taxi driver “on the fringes of the criminal underworld,” according to the film’s official synopsis, who pushes himself further into that world in order to try and help his mother as she struggles with addiction.
The teaser trailer puts all the emphasis on the importance of John in Jean’s life. It becomes pretty evident that he may be the only reason she’s hanging on at all. He certainly appears to be the only thing good she sees in her world.
“Glassland” also stars Will Poulter, Michael Smiley, Gary O’Nuallain and Sashi Rami. Barrett wrote and directed the film, which was produced by Juliette Bonas and Ed Guiney. A production of Element Pictures and Irish Film Board, the film will be released to theaters on Friday, Sept. 26.
