The Future Lasts a Long Time

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

A stolen video, some money and a restless craving, Jimmy and May escape the city in search of drugs, only to find themselves reluctantly involved in the death of a friend. The Future Lasts a Long Time is a British road movie that takes us on a dream like journey from the inner city to the widescreen landscape of the fens - a kind of anthem for doomed youth in the '90s and a homage to Terence Malick.
