Celyn Jones’ ‘superlative’ film, The Vanishing, has its UK release


Following his extraordinary screenwriting debut, Set Fire to the Stars, Celyn’s second feature has just been released in the UK. 

The Vanishing, is a 2019 Scottish psychological thriller directed by Kristoffer Nyholm and written by Celyn and Joe Bone and set in the Flannan Isles, which have been notorious for the mystery disappearance of three lighthouse keepers in 1900. The film stars Gerard Butler and Peter Mullan and was heralded as ‘superlative’ by The Times. Film critic Mark Kermode said, “It’s well written… a gripping, taut, stripped down, well organised thriller with a couple of moments that genuinely made me jump”.
