Press Release: December 21, 2020
A Safe Place, a thoroughly original British heist/comedy that explores mental health in a new light, comes to Amazon Prime Video.
From Flipindistical Pictures, comes John Henry Westhead’s feature film, A Safe Place, a heartfelt look at the world of mental health that has never been explored before on film, until now. Westhead spent twenty years researching the subject of mental health which has brought authenticity to the characters’ stories of A Safe Place. Westhead describes the heist comedy as ‘Shameless meets One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.’
A Safe Place features some wonderful performances from a wonderful array of actors who bring the story of 17 Albion Street, (care home for adults with mental health conditions such as autism and schizophrenia), to life. Kevin, pathological demand avoidance syndrome, is played loveably by Dean Ackerman. Earl, schizophrenic, is played with a steal purpose by Mark Ramsay. Teddy, autistic, is played with a subtle intensity by Nick Thomas. And then there is Frank Lyle, undiagnosed psychopath, who convinces Earl to steal the safe of 17 Albion Street in order to pay off his debts and set this story in motion. There is also Shirley Jaffe who played Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange along with a host of other fine performances, including Eirini Mo, who wonderfully plays Alina, the therapist, who can smartly deal with all the patients and puts things in order.
A Safe Place is the first film of a trilogy directed by John Henry Westhead, all to be released by Flipindistical Pictures. Cornered, a faux music biopic, is in post production, and arrives on Amazon Prime in early 2021. Steve the Stammer’s Missing Painting, a treatise on art and the nature of creation, is in pre production and arrives in late 2021/early 2022.
