What is the Almond and the Seahorse About?
The Almond and the Seahorse Plot and Review
The British feature drama The Almond and the Seahorse first premiered at the Zurich Film Festival on September 26, 2022. Celyn Jones and Kate O’Reilly jointly wrote the script for the screenplay. Here we will update the plot of The Almond and the Seahorse as revealed by the British Film Festival.
The play “The Almond and the Seahorse” entails a story about post-traumatic events and their subsequent effects on human relationships, as the site reads.
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and its substantial post-suffering on both the patients Joe (Celyn Jones) and Gwen (Trine Dyrholm) and their relatives will be the main theme of the plot. Meanwhile, the main characters, played by Rebel Wilson and Charlotte Gainsbourg, aside from the TBI sufferers, will struggle with the gradual loss in their partners’ memories.
Alongside all this suffering, the story will take a turn in Rebel’s Sara and Charlotte’s architect characters’ lives. For instance, both the characters, in their disconsolate situations, are presented as confined within a new relation (seemingly, of an enforced identity crisis), the LGBTQ.
Consequently, there can be observed an ongoing practice of an irrational acceptance of psychologically absurd identities like homosexuality at the stake of the biological anatomy of man. Henceforth, as the trailer reveals, The Almond and The Seahorse dispenses not only glimpses of the post-traumatic events but also portrays the futuristic traumatic events that are blindly promised to the western and the global world at large.
The Almond and the Seahorse Cast
Interestingly, the British drama The Almond and the Seahorse presents the international cast Rebel Wilson (an Australian actress) and Charlotte Gainsbourg (a British-French actress). Alongside these international actresses, the series cast Celyn Jones (serving as director and writer for the script) and Meera Syal (an English actress), as per the British Film Festival.
Rebel Wilson will play the role of an archaeologist Sarah, Joe’s wife. Meanwhile, a surviving TBI patient, Joe, will be played by Celyn Jones. Alongside Jones, Trine Dyrholm will perform the similar character of a TBI patient as Gwen. Additionally, the supporting role of an architect, living a long journey with her partner Gwen, will be played by Charlotte Gainsbourg. At the same time, Meera Syal will join them on the psychological plane, per the official trailer.
