LONDON — “Appetite,” a $2.5 million feature from first-time director George Milton, will be the first pro-duction financed by the Alternative Cinema Co., the arthouse division of J&M Entertainment.

The British pic stars German singer Ute Lemper in a psychological ensemble drama set in a faded grand hotel.
