Film based on Daniel Clay's novel stars Tim Roth, Cillian Murphy
Cillian Murphy and Eloise Laurence. Film Movement plans a New York theatrical release in the first quarter with a limited national rollout to follow, as well as VOD. Pic centers on an 11-year-old unwittingly drawn into her neighbors’ unfolding melodrama involving violence, sex and life-shattering illness. Charles Gant wrote in his Cannes review for Variety, “Melding heightened drama with quirky, state-of-the-nation social realism, the pic aims to undercut epic plot contrivance with naturalistic perfs and a lyrical shooting style.” The acquisition was negotiated by Film Movement’s president Adley Gartenstein and Carole Baraton of Wild Bunch.
