Second Coming

[This Post has been compiled with some links provided by SofieB. Thanks, Sofie.]

This is the big screen debut for writer, Debbie Tucker Green.

From various sources, we have this summary of the story :

Second Coming follows a tight family unit navigating their way through family life as it breaks down in the aftermath of an unexplained pregnancy of a family member who isn’t entirely mentally stable.

The film is funded, in part, by a grant from the British Film Institute and is also co-financed by Film4, Channel 4’s movie unit and supported by the Sundance Institute Film Program.

Nicola will play a Counsellor in this movie. Given that Debbie Tucker Green usually writes big ensemble pieces, it seems unlikely that Nicola will have a big role in the movie. However, Debbie is also a brilliant writer who gives all of her characters meaningful and significant voices. So even if its a minor role, we are confident that Nicola’s part will be an interesting one.

From IMDb, we know that the project is now in the post production phase, which means it should be ready for release soon. Here’s hoping that with a big name like Idris Elba involved and support from the Sundance Institute, the movie will get a proper cinema release around the world so that we can all get to watch Nicola on the big screen!


The film had its debut at the 2014 September Toronto International Film Festival and here is a selection of film reviews posted by critics who have seen the movie :

Nicola does not have a big role in this movie, so its not surprising that her cameo hasn’t merited a mention in any of these reviews.
