BAFTA-winning actor Emily Watson gives another powerhouse performancein brand new nail-biting psychological drama Too Close, that had viewers enthralled when it aired on ITV and arrives on DVD on 21 June 2021, from Acorn Media International.
Based on Natalie Daniels’ best-selling novel, we enter the world of dedicated forensic psychiatrist, Dr Emma Robinson (Watson – Chernobyl, Apple Tree Yard), who has worked with her fair share of high security patients and isn’t easily shocked…Then she meets Connie Mortenson (Denise Gough – Guerilla, Paula)…
Connie is on remand, awaiting trial for a heinous crime. When Emma is assigned to her case she must explore the woman’s complicated mind to find out what really happened on the fateful night and what was it that made Connie into a monster?
Delving deep into Connie’s psych, she tries to find answers to how her beautiful friend Ness (Thalissa Teixeira – Baghdad Central), fits into the puzzle and why does her husband refuse to visit her? As Emma tries to make sense of everything, Connie starts to show a searing insight into Emma’s deepest insecurities and begins to brutally exploit them.
Their sessions become a complex psychological game with confusing and emotional undercurrents and the more Emma tries to uncover the truth and learn what triggered Connie’s despicable behaviour, the more she realises that her drive to get justice, may be the thing that destroys her.
