Bastian Günther’s One Of These Days sounds like a modern day They Shoot Horses Don’t They

Studio Soho has announced they will be bringing the Berlinale Panorama entry, One Of These Days, a compelling and psychologically charged drama, to cinemas March 18th.

Written & directed by Bastian Günther, the film stars Joe Cole, Carrie Preston, Callie Hernandez & Cullen Moss

In a small southern town in the US, twenty volunteers compete to win a brand-new pick-up truck, in the annual ‘Hands On’ contest, a prize that might finally tip the scales of life in their favour. Each contestant has their own reasons for joining the contest, and as the blisteringly hot days and long nights add up, their humanity is laid bare.

Car dealership employee Joan (Carrie Preston, “The Good Wife”, True Blood”) provides fervent enthusiasm to the contestants, including the young family man Kyle (Joe Cole, “Gangs Of London”, “Peaky Blinders, “A Prayer Before Dawn”), who wants to win the car at all costs, but who will hold on and win – and at what cost?

Sydney Pollack’s 1969 adaptation of They Shoot Horses, Don’t They? dealt with similar ideas, but set around a Depression-era dance marathon competition.

Written and directed by Bastian Günther (“Houston”, “Autopilots”), ONE OF THESE DAYS has received critical acclaim during its programming at numerous film festivals around the world, including Berlinale, Zurich Film Festival, and Nashville Film Festival.

Director Bastian Günther’s compelling, psychologically charged images ultimately draws a timeless and topical picture of poverty, wealth, and desperation. Based on true events, ONE OF THESE DAYS portrays a society in which the obsession with economic gain leads to tragedy. Anchored by terrific central performances from Joe Cole and Carrie Preston, and a great supporting cast.
