A micro-budget romantic drama from filmmaker Jack McLoughlin has landed a lovely slice of the Amazon Prime pie. More below…
Avid Film Stories readers (hello!) might remember way back in 2020, when we told you all about a nice little independent movie that needed a bit of cash to get going.
Well, three years and a whole lot of graft later, Kate & Jake no longer needs your money. It’s already been made! Look, there’s a trailer and everything!
If you do want to support an up-and-coming filmmaker, though, the least you could do is check the film out. It’s coming to Amazon Prime Video on 20 October, you see, and like all films, it provides the maximum possible entertainment value when you’re watching it (reading this and thinking about it doesn’t count, I’m afraid). Check out the official synopsis below…
After being separated for three months, Kate calls up Jake to ask if they can meet. She has some news that is exciting, yet devastating. The meeting prompts the pair to reminisce, exploring what happened to their relationship…
Described by the filmmakers as “a truthful, hard-hitting yet funny tale of adolescent love and working class hardships, exploring the themes of guilt, loss and dreams,” the whole thing is set and filmed around Liverpool, and looks properly lovely. If you were at the Worcester Film Festival, or the Spirit of Independence Micro-Budget Film Festival last year, you might have already seen it. For everyone else, the Prime release is a great chance to support some properly independent filmmaking (which we’re always big fans of).
