AFM First Look: Rafe Spall in ‘Denmark’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Rafe Spall  can be seen in “Denmark” in the first shot from the upcoming Adrian Shergold comedy.

The film stars Spall as a down-on-his-luck dad, living in Wales, who decides to head to Denmark with the intention of getting arrested, having heard how comfortable Danish prisons are in a TV show.

Production wrapped at end-October and took in Wales and Denmark. WestEnd has global rights to the film and is at AFM shopping it this week.

Shergold (“Funny Cow”) directed “Denmark.” Jeff Murphy, who penned Welsh drama “Hinterland,” which sold to Netflix, wrote the film. It is produced by another “Hinterland” alum, Ed Talfan, and David Aukin (“Churchill’s Secret”). BBC Films and Ffilm Cymru Wales developed and financed “Denmark”

Joe Oppenheimer exec produced for BBC Films and said: “’Denmark’ is a little jewel of a film. Adrian’s singular vision matched with the delicate warmth of Jeff Murphy’s script echoes the humour and humanity of filmmakers like Alexander Payne and Bill Forsyth.

“It’s a story of a modern, timeless Everyman, portrayed with great empathy and effortless charm by Rafe Spall.”
