The new run of one-off dramas will include Cargese, described by Sky Arts as a “unique piece of poetic realism which mines the tragic seam of adolescent love and loss”.
Directed by Smith and written by award-winning playwright Simon Stephens, it stars Craig Roberts (Submarine), Joe Cole (Skins, The Hour) and Avigail Tlalim (The Town) as a group of disaffected teenagers in south London - Cargèse being a village on the west coast of Corsica which is wistfully mentioned by one of the drama’s characters.
Cargese begins filming next week and is scheduled to air on Sky Arts 1 on 25 April 2013. Smith will not appear in the programme himself.
April 25 is my birthday! And I live in Sweden where I probably won’t be able to watch this…
