|Film Details||The Opening Night|
|Plot Summary||A tale of first love and loss, played out upon a stage.
It's the opening night of a new musical, and backstage life is buzzing for everyone except Marianne, the young female lead. She is lost in her own thoughts, and faces a tough decision - should she tell the male lead, Dorian, that she is in love with him - or are his feelings merely part of the performance?
A visual homage to the theatre and a love note to youth by indie filmmaker Sophie Black.
