Preview – Serenity


Prepare yourself for surreal thrill-ride into the weird and wicked in Sky Cinema’s original production, Serenity, which sees lonely fisherman Baker Dill’s life disrupted when his ex-wife and her abusive new husband come to town.

Serenity, directed and written by Peaky Blinders’ Steven Knight, boasts a star-studded cast including Matthew McConaughey in the lead role as Baker. Anne Hathaway dons the blonde locks and body scars of Baker’s ex-wife, Karen, and Jason Clarke becomes her violent new husband, Frank. Djimon Honsou, Diane Lane and Jeremy Strong round off the cast.

Baker Dill’s quiet life as a fisherman interrupted by a series of strange occurrences revolving around his son, whom he lost custody of to his ex-wife, Karen, during their divorce. Stranger still, Karen shows up out of the blue on Baker’s island with her abusive new husband in tow and a offer which forces Baker to choose between his morality and his livelihood.

Serenity – Thursday 8:00pm on Sky Cinema (Premiere).
