Signature Films announced today that Haley Bennett (Hillbilly Elegy, The Girl on the Train, Swallow), Sam Riley (Control, Rebecca) and Marisa Abela (“Industry,” Five Dates) are starring in the romance, She is Love, from writer/director Jamie Adams (Black Mountain Poets). Signature Films’ Sarah Gabriel and Marc Goldberg are producing with Christian Mercuri. The film, made in an improvisational style that Adams has become known for, wrapped principal photography this week in Cornwall, UK.
Coming face to face after being estranged for over a decade, divorced couple, Idris and Patricia, opt to revisit the past and traverse that treacherous path together, emerging open to new beginnings.
Writer/director Jamie Adams commented: “We have this word in Welsh; Hiraeth, it roughly means a longing for home, shooting She is Love felt like coming home. Very rarely have I left a shoot feeling Hiraeth, feeling longing, to be back on that set, continuing to explore scenes. But when you have a lead cast including the exceptional creativity of Haley Bennett, Sam Riley, and Marisa Abela, the alchemy of that; the honesty, sincerity and originality that that collaboration creates is something so rare and special. I feel so grateful to our supportive and adventurous Producers for giving us the opportunity to explore and shoot some incredible moments on location in the beauty and mystery of Kernow.”
Signature Films’ Sarah Gabriel said, “Jamie’s unique creative process gave talent the freedom to choose their own adventure. He was clear about the destination, but they were able explore their own journeys to get there. It was thrilling to watch them create something so powerful in real time.”
