It's difficult to believe that it's taken until 2019 for English language cinema to give us a one actor drama in which said actor happens to be a woman. Enter The Bellwether, writer/director Christopher Morrison's confined thriller shot in an ancient church in Brussels, Belgium.

Alex Reid (The Descent; Misfits) plays four different versions of Joanne, a bookstore owner abducted by a conspiracy who subject her to psychological torture designed to break her will.

The Bellwether releases on Digital HD February 12th.

Check out the trailer below.




The official synopsis reads:

In The Bellwether, to the outside world Joanne (Reid) is just a bookstore owner, but The Conspiracy knows different. She is dangerous. She is a bellwether: a quiet leader who is well on her way to being her whole self. When they kidnap her to break her, to make her conform, they discover that Joanne is something so much more than even she ever knew. The Conspiracy locks Joanne in a 13th century chapel and she communicates with her 'operator' only through text and images shown a television. In order to break her, they work on her hidden pain, the fact that she had an abortion four years ago. After standing up to the mental torture, the Conspiracy goes even farther; impregnating her and trying to force her to have the baby. At the moment when she is about to give in she will either break, or everything will change, for herself and for the Conspiracy.
