Overview

What if an immaculate conception took place in a South London household? The simple premise belies a complex family drama that upturns notions of British social realism.

Idris Elba and Nadine Marshall play the couple whose relationship is rocked by the news of a pregnancy that can’t be explained. Director Debbie Tucker Green, who built her reputation in theatre and with a series of impressive shorts, crafts a subtle, intelligent and thought-provoking drama that steers clear of any supernatural implications. Studded with impressively authentic performances from its cast, and pregnant with metaphysical mystery, Second Coming is a true original of contemporary British cinema.
