Joshua Glenister in Small Town British Teen Drama 'As I Am' Trailer
"I want to breathe the air outside of this town…" Vertical Ent. has released the official trailer for an indie drama from the UK titled As I Am, marking the feature directorial debut of filmmaker / cameraman Guy Davies. This originally premiered at film festivals in 2019 under the title Philophobia (which means "an overwhelming and unreasonable fear of falling in love") and has been updated for its full release. Set in the English countryside following a story of a shy boy and his friends. One week of school remains for Kai, an aspiring writer, and his friends. How they spend this time will cost one of them their life and leave them changed forever. Joshua Glenister stars in this as Kai, along with Harry Lloyd, James Faulkner, Kim Spearman, Kate Isitt, Jack Gouldbourne, Alexander Lincoln, Charlie Frances, Grace Englert, and Elizabeth Healey. Seems like there's a lot going on here about the mistakes you make in your youth.
