If you caught Sarah Bolger in Emelie (here’s our review) you’d never let her near your kids or hamster again. She is set to take on another mothering role in the upcoming A Good Woman is Hard to Find.
Bloody Disgusting has the first ever image from Road Games director Abner Pastoll‘s next feature, which was filmed last year in Northern Ireland and Belgium with the production company behind Raw!
“The film follows a young mother (Bolger) trying to protect her kids while investigating the truth behind her husband’s murder.”
Edward Hogg (“Taboo”), Andrew Simpson (“Notes on a Scandal”), Jane Brennan(“Brooklyn”), Packy Lee (“Peaky Blinders”), Caolan Byrne (“The Foreigner”), and Josh Bolt(“Nowhere Boy”) also star.
Academy Award nominee and BAFTA winner Ronan Blaney (“Booglaoo and Graham”) wrote the script for the film, which is set in Belfast and will be released next year.
Here’s the long synopsis of the film that’s currently prepping for a festival run.
“Sarah is a recently widowed young mother. Her son Ben has been an elective mute since the day he witnessed his father being knifed to death on their estate. Police have done nothing to catch the killer, categorizing his death as a falling out amongst thieves. Then Tito literally bursts into Sarah’s world. He’s ripped off drug-dealers and decides to stash the stolen drugs in her flat. Frightened senseless, Sarah wants nothing to do with this but caught between a rock and a hard place, she sees an opportunity to use Tito to gain information about what might have happened to her husband with the hope of eventually returning to some semblance of a normal life.”
Set up as a British-Belgian co-pro, A Good Woman Is Hard to Find is produced by The Host’s Junyoung Jang at London-based February Films with Guillaume Benski at Paris-based Superbe Films (Road Games) and Jean-Yves Roubin at Liège-based Frakas Productions (RAW).
Exec producers are Jan Pace and James Atherton of QuickFire, Billy Acumen of BA Entertainment and JBG Pictures and with regional support from Wallimage in Belgium and Northern Ireland Screen in the UK.
