This was part of a quarterly BFI initiative that gives first time directors opportunities to make their first features, with budgets under £2 million (just over $3 million). 

Second Coming is a drama that centers on a London family dealing with the impact of a pregnancy of a member who isn't entirely mentally stable. 

Idris Elba stars alongside Nadine Marshall, who starred in Tucker Green's 2011 docu-dram, Random - a combo documentary, stage and

Nadine Marshall

feature narrative used to tell the story of 24 hours in the life of a Black British woman on the day her younger brother is killed in a random act of violence.

Film4 is co-financing Tucker Green's feature debut, with Hillbilly Films.

Second Coming was shot over six weeks, and is certainly a film to watch for in the next 12 months.

Tucker Green is an award-winning playwright who's also written for British television. Dirty Butterfly, her debut play, was produced by Soho Theatre, and her next work, Born Bad, won the 2004 Laurence Olivier award.

Protagonist Pictures is on-board to handle international sales, so let's hope the film travels.
