Interrogating ideas of hero worship, Dark Sublime
follows an unlikely new friendship as an old one fractures. Oli arrives at the door of a now-forgotten sci-fi icon - impatient to make friends, and to make something of his life. Marianne, a jobbing actress, knows about waiting - for the phone to ring, for her best friend to see her differently, for her turn at something more substantial than a half-remembered role on a cult TV show. He wants an autograph; she doesn't want anything from him. Yet as they start to explore each other's worlds, they begin to discover what every good relationship needs: time and space.
