Based on New Zealander Anthony McCarten's novel of the same name, the film centres around Donald Clarke, played by Sangster, a terminally ill teenager who craves sex and adventure, however his time is limited and he’s never even had a girlfriend. Directed by Ian Fitzgibbon, the film blends live action with animation to tell the story of the young would-be graphic artist who knows that death is just around the corner.
Aisling Loftus (soon to be seen in the new BBC adaptation of The Borrowers) plays Shelly, the girl with whom Donald finds affection and a kind of kinship, she's a dry but astute teen who cuts through the shell of his façade – hat to cover his baldness and drawings to cover his pain – and makes him feel alive and a real teenager.
Death of a Superhero is due to have a theatrical release later this year or early next year.
