MINDHORN – Trailer for Julian Barratt’s Action Comedy

The directorial debut of British theatre director Sean Foley, MINDHORN is comic romp about a fading actor trying to relive his glory days as a sleuth with a robotic truth-telling eye.


“You can’t hide the truth from Mindhorn.” Washed-up Richard Thorncroft (Julian Barratt) peaked with hit 1980s detective show Mindhorn, playing the titular Isle of Man sleuth with a robotic eye that allowed him to literally “see the truth”. Decades later, when a deranged Manx criminal demands Mindhorn as his nemesis, Thorncroft returns to the scene of his greatest triumphs for one last chance to reignite his glory days, professional credibility and even romance with former co-star/paramour Patricia Deville (Essie Davis).

MINDHORN is released in Irish cinemas May 5, 2017.
