According to Animal’s screenwriter Emma Unsworth, Animals will have its UK and Ireland premiere starting on August 2nd!
Clare Binns, joint M.D. of Picturehouse, said: “[The film] is fresh, dynamic and obscenely hilarious, and a unique, unflinching take on contemporary womanhood. It has a truthfulness about the dilemmas we all face, and this mix of comedy and honesty makes Hyde one of the most fearless and exciting directors around.”
The film is produced by Sarah Brocklehurst, BAFTA nominated for “Black Pond,” with Rebecca Summerton and Hyde for Closer Productions, and Cormac Fox for Vico Films. It was developed with the assistance of Creative England and Screen Australia.
The pic will have its European premiere at the Sundance Film Festival: London on May 31.
Cornerstone Films is handling world sales and is co-repping North America with UTA.
