Pic stars Romola Garai, Bill Nighy, Rose Byrne, Tara Fitzgerald and Henry Thomas. David Parfitt (“Shakespeare in Love”) produced the film.

Exec producers are Distant Horizon’s Anant Singh and BBC Films’ David M. Thompson.

Upcoming films from Sam Goldwyn include “Me Without You” (along with Fireworks Pictures), “Das Experiment” and “The Man From Elysian Fields” (also with Fireworks Pictures).
