Hard Times & Great Expectations by Nick Quantrill

A short film adapted from Hull crime writer Nick Quantrill’s debut novel ‘Broken Dreams’.

Private Investigator Joe Geraghty meets a client at the Hull Pierhead, hoping to gather information on a missing person case he is investigating. Instead, he gets a lesson on the history of the waterfront and an ex-trawlerman’s views about the future of the city.

The film is by Dave Lee (director of much-praised Philip Larkin shorts ‘Here‘ and ‘Bridge For The Living‘) and narrated by Hull-born actor Paul Popplewell (‘Tyrannosaur’, ‘Black Mirror’).

The film was made for the Humber Mouth literary festival 2012 and is copyright Dave Lee (the film) and Nick Quantrill (the words).
