“It’s only a matter of time”

Copyrighted, Universal Pictures

Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “Filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan unveils a chilling, mysterious new thriller about a family on a tropical holiday who discover that the secluded tropical beach where they are relaxing for a few hours is somehow causing them to age rapidly - reducing their entire lives into a single day.

It’s a perfect beach day, or so thought a family, a young couple, a few tourists, and a refugee. All of them end up in the same secluded, idyllic cove filled with rock pools and sandy shore, encircled by green, densely vegetated cliffs. But all is not as it seems; this utopia hides a dark secret. First, there is the dead body of a woman found floating in the crystal-clear water. Then, there is the odd fact that all the children are aging rapidly. Soon everybody is growing older every half hour and there doesn't seem to be any way to escape the cove.

Based loosely on the graphic novel Sandcastle (2013) by Pierre Oscar Levy.”
