I’ve just come from a screening of “Tyrannosaur,” Paddy Considine’s feature directing debut that made something of a splash at Sundance in January, winning awards for Considine and stars Olivia Colman and Peter Mullan. I’ll discuss the film in more detail soon, but I’m happy to report that the early festival hype is thoroughly justified — it’s a startlingly severe but compassionate character study broken open by a tremendous pair of lead performances that merit major awards consideration. Strand Releasing have the US rights, though a release date hasn’t been confirmed; for now, however, the film’s cryptic UK one-sheet ranks as one of 2011’s finest. (No, it’s not about dinosaurs.) Check out the full poster after the jump.
