Candlestick Film Outline

Candlestick Film Movie Title Logo

A social gathering is rocked to its core when Jack accuses his best
friend's wife of infidelity. But as the allegations start flying, it soon
emerges that a far more deadly game may be at play.

Channeling Alfred Hitchcock's Rope and Dial M for Murder with its single
location and sinister protagonist, Candlestick is a stylish throwback
to classic 1950s cinema with a contemporary setting.

The stage has been set for an exciting game of cat and mouse.
But some games should never be played...
