Two More Titles Coming Up From Olive Films in March
Posted January 18, 2013 07:26 PM by Webmaster
Olive Films have added up two more titles to their March slate: Julie Gavras' (daughter of acclaimed director Costa-Gavras) Late Bloomers (2011), starring William Hurt, Isabella Rossellini and Doreen Mantle, and Benedek Fliegauf's Womb (2010), starring Eva Green, Matt Smith and Lesley Manville.
In a romantic comedy, a man and a woman love each other but everything conspires to drive them apart. Despite their true feelings, they separate now so they can be together later. The man and woman are Adam and Mary. But Mary and Adam aren't your typical 20 or 30-year-old couple; they're nearing 60. Like many 60-year-old couples of the 21st century, they're high functioning. And what's more, they do it with style. They deftly juggle children, grandchildren, work and friends, with all the joys and disappointments that come with married life. Until one day they realize, to their great surprise, they've entered the senior category. And they react to this realization in totally opposite ways.
A woman's consuming love forces her to bear the clone of her dead beloved. From his infancy to manhood, she faces the unavoidable complexities of her controversial decision.
Note: In Canada, the two films will be distributed by Mongrel Media. See our listings here and here.
