And Then Come the Nightjars

Directed by UK filmmaker Paul Robinson, this endearing film stars distinguished performances from British actors Nigel Hastings and David Fielder. Adapted to screen by UK screenwriter Bea Roberts, on whose play the film is based, the drama explores addiction, loneliness and some of Britain’s social shifts over the past 20 years.

The story begins in 2001, when local veterinarian Jeff (Nigel Hastings) is assigned to cull the beloved herd of Devonshire dairy farmer Michael (David Fielder) after foot-and-mouth takes hold. Despite their initial distaste for one another, an unlikely and tender friendship begins to blossom between them.
