Network Distributing is proud to announce that it will be releasing the critically acclaimed feature debut film CHICKEN from writer/director Joe Stephenson from 18th September on DVD and Blu-ray in the UK and Ireland.
Written by Freddie Machin and Chris New and featuring powerful performances from Scott Chambers (Brothers, Blood Money, Ticking), Morgan Watkins (Kingsman: The Secret Service, Wild Bill, Suffragette) and Yasmin Paige (Submarine, The Double, Ballet Shoes), the DVD and Blu-ray will feature special extras including special Ian McKellen interviews with Scott Chambers, additional auditions and performances from the lead actors, phone videos, full score and a behind the scenes gallery.
Chambers plays Richard, a fifteen-year-old boy with learning difficulties who lives in a shabby caravan with his older brother, Polly (Watkins). Life for Richard is harsh, with the engaging, nature-loving teenager yearning for stability while frequently finding himself on the wrong side of his brother's destructive, often violent moods. Finding it easier to communicate with animals - none more so than his beloved hen, Fiona - Richard nevertheless forms a friendship with rebellious seventeen-year-old Annabel (Paige), whose family have recently acquired the farmland on which the brothers live.
