Mini Productions Announce The World Premiere Of Jennifer Sheridan’s Directorial Debut ROSE: A LOVE STORY This October
Mini Productions, Great Point Media, Bone Garden Films, Fields Park & The Development Partnership are excited to share the poster and trailer for new UK horror, Rose - A Love Story ahead of celebrating its World Premiere at the 2020 BFI London Film Festival on 13th October as part of the CULT strand.
Starring Sophie Rundle (Peaky Blinders, Gentleman Jack) & Matt Stokoe (Cursed, Jamestown), Rose - A Love Story follows a young couple living alone in the woods, who must contend with a life-altering illness that manifests itself in a violent and terrifying way.
Sam (Stokoe) and Rose (Rundle) live a quiet life. Hunkered down in their remote woodland farmhouse, they spend their days far from the prying eyes of the outside world. Rose uses the peace and quiet to work on her novel, while Sam sets traps, hunts animals and goes to work fortifying the hidden cottage they call home. In another life, their world would seem idyllic; but Rose’s mystery illness has clouded any sense of normality that the couple may achieve.
When a trip to collect supplies goes awry, Sam and Rose are thrown into a terrifying series of events that soon herald the arrival of a mysterious stranger. The little life that the couple have forged for themselves is now more fragile than ever.
Rose - A Love Story is the feature directorial debut for multi-award winning shorts director Jennifer Sheridan who, for the last ten years has been honing her storyteller skills through her work as an editor on shows such as Cuckoo and League of Gentleman.
