Hellboy, this year’s SXSW Audience Award-winner Before I Disappear) will never find Kubrick but instead is forced to team up with Rupert Grint’s (winner of the What’s On Stage Award ! 2014 of the Newcomer of the Year) lousy manager of a seedy rock band to develop the biggest con of all time, in this riotous, high-tempo action-comedy penned by the new British comedy genius Dean Craig (Death at a Funeral, A Few Best Men).

French master Alexandre Arcady spotlights the tragedy of Ilan Halimi, who was abducted and tortured - simply for being Jewish - for three long weeks before he succumbed to his wounds. All of France was horrified that such an appalling, abject murder, the first of its kind since the Holocaust, could occur in the early 21st century. Told poignantly through the eyes of Ilan’s mother, 24 Days is the hard-hitting story of a family confronted by irrational and idiotic ideology, and by the police repeatedly taking the wrong track. It is a testimony that leaves a mark, so that no one may forget and so that such acts may never happen again.
