Little Joe (DVD+BLU)
A chilling sci-fi thriller and Cannes Film Festival winner, starring Emily Beecham, Ben Whishaw and Kerry Fox.
Alice (Emily Beecham), a single mother, is a dedicated plant breeder who develops new species. She has engineered a very special crimson flower, remarkable not only for its beauty but also for its therapeutic value: if well looked after, this plant makes its owner happy.
Against company policy, Alice takes one home as a gift for her teenage son, Joe. They christen it ‘Little Joe’ but as it grows, so too does Alice’s suspicion that her new creations may not be as harmless as their nickname suggests. Ben Whishaw isn't type-cast as the nice guy in this film either, as he likely prepares to become the nations favourite quartermaster once again.
