What can a teenage boy who is into Parkour and a middle-aged woman with Parkinson’s possibly have in common? The desire to move… Kinetics is a film based on the remarkable true story of two people seemingly at polar opposites. As Rose tries to come to terms with her diagnosis, an unlikely friendship springs up when young Lukas comes tumbling into her life. But will the bond between them be strong enough when things go wrong?
Kinetics was written by Dorchester-based actor and writer Sue Wylie in reaction to her diagnosis with early-onset Parkinson’s. As a stage play it toured the South West and London, receiving phenomenal feedback from audiences and medical professionals alike, for its bravery, honesty, humour and passion. The film version has been equally well received and has recently been selected for the 2018 Cambridge Film Festival.
