Check out the beautiful trailer below for Dimensions, the first feature film from husband and wife writer/director team Ant Neely and Sloane U’Ren who sold their house to finance the period/sci fi drama.

Taking the lead role of Stephen is The Inbetweeners actor Henry Lloyd-Hughes (represented by Curtis Brown), who can also be seen this year in Weekender.

The film also stars Camilla Rutherford, Patrick Godfrey, Olivia Llewellyn and Sean Hart.

The film also introduces three new child actors from Cambridgeshire: Sam Harrison as the young Stephen Hannah Carson as Victoria and George Thomas as the young Conrad. Ant Neely said of their casting process:

"As for the children - they are all relative new comers (ranging from no experience to a bit of theatre and a short film). We did see about 75 kids, but these three had something very special and very natural. Of course, child actors can be difficult to cast, so we felt really lucky to find Sam, Hannah and George. They had to match their 'grown up' counterparts as well, which added a level of complexity. Their relationship as kids is pivotal to the film - if the audience didn't buy it, we would be sunk. They were fantastic though, so we are very happy."

The film's official synopsis:

Stephen is a brilliant young boy who lives in Cambridge, England, in what appears to be the 1920s – but nothing in Stephen’s life is quite as it seems. His world is turned upside down upon meeting a charismatic and inspirational professor at a garden party who demonstrates to Stephen and his friends what life would be like if they themselves were merely one, or two, dimensional beings. He then proceeds to explain that by manipulating other dimensions, time travel may actually be possible.

As Stephen’s life unfolds, events lead him to dedicate himself to turning the Professor’s theories of time travel into reality. Jealousy, love, obsession, temptation and greed surround him, influencing his fragile mind and the direction of his work.
