Supernova, the second film from writer/director Harry Macqueen (Hinterland) has finished shooting in the Lake District. The film stars Colin Firth and Stanley Tucci as a longtime couple on a road trip through Cumbria.

Supernova centres on Sam and Tusker, partners of 20 years, who are travelling across England in their old RV visiting friends, family and places from their past. Since Tusker was diagnosed with early-onset dementia two years ago, their time together is the most important thing they have.

As the trip progresses, however, their ideas for their future clash, secrets come out, and their love for each other is tested as never before. Ultimately, they must confront the question of what it means to love one another in the face of Tusker’s illness.

Supernova is produced by Emily Morgan (I Am Not A Witch) and Tristan Goligher from The Bureau (Lean On Pete, 45 Years, Weekend).
