The silent cinema inspired movie comes to UK cinemas in September.

Oscar winning composer Stephen Warbeck (Shakespeare in Love, Billy Elliott) makes his directorial debut as co-director alongside John-Paul Davidson with The Man in the Hat. Inspired by silent cinema, the film stars Ciarán Hinds as the eponymous Man in the Hat, who drives across France in search of a mysterious woman while being pursued by a group of angry men. The movie is near-silent and boasts a score by Warbeck himself. Stephen Dillane, Muna Otaru and Maïwenn also star.

The Man in the Hat is in UK cinemas from September 18th, followed by a digital release on October 19th.

Check out the trailer and poster below.

The official synopsis reads:

We follow The Man in the Hat (Ciarán Hinds, First Man, The Woman in Black) as he journeys through France in a Fiat 500, accompanied by a framed photograph of an unknown woman. He is pursued by five angry men in a Citroën Dyane. Why are they chasing him? And how can he shake them off?

Travelling North on his escape across the mountains, gorges and bridges of France, he hears stories of love and loss, Otis Redding and Canteloube, and encounters mysterious strangers including The Damp Man (Stephen Dillane, Game of Thrones, Darkest Hour), The Chef (Muna Otaru, TV’s Broken, The Keeping Room) and The Biker (Maïwenn, Polisse, Pardonnez-moi); coming face to face with the vivid eccentricities of an old country on an old continent, whilst trying to evade the pursuers who are always, relentlessly, on his tail.
