Watch: Tamzin Merchant in first trailer for The Messenger

The Messenger (post-production) - Tamzin Merchant as Emma (2015)

The Messenger is the story of Jack's last melt down. A story of frustration and guilt; of love and betrayal; family and blame. How he chooses the victims he'll help next, how he, stalker-like, becomes embroiled in their lives. In this case, Mark, a journalist brutally murdered in the local park and his television presenter wife, Sarah, to whom he's desperate to say one last goodbye.

As Jack gets closer to Sarah, obsessed with passing on Mark's message, he discovers their perfect life wasn't all it was cracked up to be. They had secrets and lies just like any couple; the only problem is that Mark didn't know about them. It's the shock of that discovery that finally pushes Jack over the edge. But there is hope... When Jack's estranged sister, Emma, gets in touch, Jack starts to remember the past they shared together and as the memories come flooding back, he starts to confront the truth about the death of his father. Maybe this time he can start to believe it wasn't his fault? Maybe this time his father will finally turn up and set him free?

Pride and Precipice via Deadline
The Imitation Game's Keira Knightley on how she and the cast rallied to bring Alan Turing's tale to life.
With such varied films as Pride & Prejudice (which earned her an Oscar nom) and Pirates of the Caribbean (which earned huge boxoffice), Keira Knightley nonetheless is extremely passionate about her current project, The Imitation Game. “This is a story that speaks to everyone,” she says of the Morten Tyldum-directed film about mathematician Alan Turing and the World War II code breakers of Bletchley Park. “When you understand what Turing and others did and who they were, this truly crosses national boundaries.” Knightley just received Screen Actors Guild and Golden Globe supporting actress noms, putting her in major Oscar contention for her portrayal of real-life cryptanalyst Joan Clarke, a friend and confidant of Turing’s. The role marks a deliberate new direction for the actress.
