After a rush of pretty bad action films, Gerard Butler tries something a bit more dramatic with “The Vanishing” – a small scale psychological thriller set on a remote island off the Scottish coast.
In the story, three lighthouse keepers arrive for their six-week shift. As they settle into their normal quiet routine, something unexpected, potentially life-changing occurs – they stumble upon gold. What follows is a tense battle for survival, fed by isolation, paranoia and greed, leading three honest men down a path to destruction.
Peter Mullan and Connor Swindells co-star in the film which is helmed by Kristoffer Nyholm (“Taboo,” “The Killing”) and opens in cinemas and on VOD on January 4th.
