Synopsis: ‘It’s dark in here. Pitch black. Silent. This is where it all began and where it all ends. Perhaps, though, it isn’t as simple as that. We see our lives, the moments from our birth to our death, as a straight line – never bending, never curving. Those are old ideas though and now it is time for you to discard them and imagine more. It’s time to open your eyes to the possibility that time isn’t a simple ruler, ticking off the moments between the beginning and the end. Time is a line, a loop, a tangle of threads, a sculpture of dazzling complexity.’

Stephen is a brilliant young scientist who lives in England, in what appears to be the 1930s – but nothing in Stephen’s life is quite as it seems. A tragic event leads Stephen to become obsessed with finding a way to revisit his past. Love, jealously, desire and greed surround him, clouding his judgement and sending him spiralling towards madness.

Dimensions: A Line, A Loop, A Tangle of Threads stars Henry Lloyd-Hughes (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, The Inbetweeners, Anna Karenina), Camilla Rutherford (Gosford Park, Rome) and Patrick Godfrey (Les Misérables, Remains of the Day, The Duchess, A Room with a View).

"One of this year's festival highlights is a period brainteaser with an intriguing time-travel twist" - THE GUARDIAN

"Merchant-Ivory meets time travel in this remarkable blend of period drama and sci-fi." - BFI

"Stylish new period sci-fi drama" - THE TELEGRAPH

"Downton Abbey on Acid" - Lance Ulanoff, MASHABLE

"This is a science fiction film like no other you will ever see...the very sensitive handling of a complex premise makes this undoubtedly one of the best films I have seen this year." "Five out of Five" - NEW EMPRESS MAGAZINE

"As an exhibitor and programmer for nearly four decades, there are films that come along which surprise you. DIMENSIONS is one of those films. On the surface, it seems one thing, but as the film unspools you realize it is something else. The audiences at our festival we're skeptical about a period piece science fiction film, but when the final credits hit the screen, they gave the film a standing ovation. It exceeded expectations in the most pleasant of ways. DIMENSIONS is an intelligent, well crafted film suitable for an intelligent, cinema minded audience." - Garen Daly, NPR Commentator

"A film made in Cambridge has proved the biggest hit of the city’s film festival – outselling major releases such as Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy..." - CAMBRIDGE EVENING NEWS
