BAFTA.nomination black

Rachel and Chloe are done with being innocent 14-year-olds. Life’s too short to stay a kid forever. They head into town on a secret night out, dressed way beyond their years and oozing a sexuality they barely own. There, they find themselves pushed to extremes and the boundaries between innocent play and dangerous seduction start to blur.

Good Night is a short film written and directed by award-winning director Muriel d’Ansembourg. The film is a co-production between the London Film Shool and Blindeye Films, and made in association with The Frame and The Farm Group. The film was produced by Eva Sigurdardottir, the owner of Askja Films. Good Night was shot on location in London.
