A veteran homicide detective is pushed to the verge of a breakdown as she investigates the mysterious murder of a renowned scientist, known for their black hole research.
Anyone who is familiar with the work of Carol Morley – director of docudrama Dreams of a Life and schoolyard hysteria tale The Falling – will know this is not a filmmaker who likes to guide the audience through her stories on a piece of string. Instead, she’s content to simply leave the garden gate ajar and allow the viewer to wander through the narrative of their own accord. That ethos sits at the heart of Out of Blue, with the title’s missing definite article very much an avatar for the fractured pieces of this particular puzzle.
