Comes A Bright Day is a British film. The film was written and directed by Simon Aboud, and stars Craig Roberts, Imogen Poots, Kevin McKidd and Timothy Spall. Comes A Bright Day is Aboud's directorial debut. The film is a mix of genres: a darkly comic thriller, involving a romance set within a heist, and a story about searching for the hidden gems that make life infinitely richer.
Sam Smith, a bright, ambitious, handsome bellboy at a five-star hotel, has big dreams of running his own restaurant with his childhood friend. On a seemingly ordinary day, he suddenly finds himself in a life-or-death hostage situation with the radiantly beautiful Mary and her spirited elderly boss Charlie while running an errand at one of London’s most exclusive jewelers. Against the backdrop of an armed jewel robbery that goes badly wrong, hostages Sam and Mary discover their true feelings for each other when flung together by deadly circumstance. Charlie, at the conclusion of the situation, grants Sam his wish of running a restaurant by proposing a partnership with him. Mary tells her boss that she changed her plans of moving to Australia, and asks Sam to take her to a concert.
Principal photography began on 16 May 2011, on location around Mayfair and at London’s Elstree Studios. Comes A Bright Day was financed by Matador Pictures, Regent Capital and Lost Tribe Productions.
