Protagonist Boards Sundance-Bound Drama-Thriller ‘Surge’ Starring Ben Whishaw, First Look Revealed
Exclusive: Protagonist Pictures has boarded world sales on Sundance-bound drama-thriller Surge, starring Ben Whishaw. Here’s a first look at the buzzed-about UK film.

Whishaw stars as a man trapped in a soulless job, living a life devoid of emotion and meaning. After an impulsive act of rebellion, he unleashes a wilder version of himself and is propelled on a reckless journey though London, ultimately experiencing what it feels like to be alive.

Produced by Julia Godzinskaya and Sophie Vickers of The Witch and The Other Lamb outfit Rooks Nest and co-produced by Scott O’Donnell, the movie marks the feature debut of UK director Aneil Karia who recently shot the closing three episodes of Netflix series Top Boy.

Before that, Karia directed the opening block of Pure, produced by Drama Republic for Channel 4, and in 2016 his short Work was BAFTA and Bifa-nominated.
