‘Angel of Mine.’
Lionsgate will release Kim Farrant’s psychological thriller Angel of Mine, which stars Noomi Rapace and Yvonne Strahovski, in North America.
Adapted by Lion’s Luke Davies and David Regal from the 2008 French film L’Empreinte de L’Ange, the film will open on August 30 as a multi-platform release.
Produced by Brian Etting, Josh Etting and Su Armstrong, it will have its world premiere on August 14 at the Melbourne International Film Festival.
Rapace plays Lizzie, a grieving mother who lost her infant daughter seven years earlier. When she sees Nola (Annika Whiteley), a young girl at a neighbour’s party, she starts to believe she is her daughter.
As her obsession grows, she becomes more and more entwined in the girl’s life and loses touch with reality.
Strahovski, who stars in Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale, plays Claire, the girl’s mother, in her first role in an Australian production since I, Frankenstein in 2014.
The cast includes Luke Evans, Richard Roxburgh, Finn Little and Rob Collins. The Australian distributor, Robert Slaviero and Richard Becker’s R & R Films, will launch the film on September 5. Screen Australia provided major production investment in association with Film Victoria.
