Freestyle Digital Media has acquired the gothic drama Angelica, written and directed by Teeth‘s Mitchell Lichtenstein and starring Jena Malone (Sucker Punch, The Hunger Games), two-time Academy Award nominee Janet McTeer (Albert Nobbs, Tumbleweeds) and Ed Stoppard (The Pianist). It’s slated for release on VOD and in limited theaters November 17th.
“Angelica is a gothic tale of a newly married couple living in Victorian London who endures a series of increasingly alarming psychological and supernatural effects following the birth of their child.“
Produced by Joyce Pierpoline (Teeth), the film is based on the novel by Arthur Phillips with the same name.
Angelica first premiered as an official selection at the 2015 Berlin Film Festival.
Aside from its talented cast, a team of seasoned artists collaborated on the movie, including two-time Academy Award nominee cinematographer Dick Pope (for Mr. Turner and The Illusionist), Academy Award nominee costume designer Rita Ryack (Casino, Apollo 13) and Academy Award winning production designer Luciana Arrighi (Howard’s End). Two-time César winner Zbigniew Preisner also composed the haunting score.
