Third Star 2010
“Did you ever get the urge to do something really dangerous?”, James (Benedict Cumberbatch) asks in Third Star. The terminally ill 29-year-old urges his three closest friends to take him on a road trip to Barafundle Bay, on Wales’ rugged southern shore. He imagines they’re headed to a paradise, although the journey is tortuous to bodies as well as relationships. As so often happens in such uplifting movies about young men bonding, the camping trip becomes a metaphor for life.

The undertaking is fraught with practical difficulties, surreal encounters and emotionally ravaging revelations. For his best friend Miles (JJ Field), the trip means wrestling with the gloomy reality that the ones he loves tend to die. For Davy (Tom Burke) it’s about being there and holding the effort together – while for Bill (Adam Robertson) it’s about running away from the mistakes he’s made and the comfortable trap that is his life. Each step of the journey is one step further from the past and to a brave new world about courage, dignity and the beauty that lies in the friendship between these four young men.
