Event Details

Bridport’s definitive film festival celebrating the art of literary adaptation.

This year’s guest curator will be Screenwriter and Director, Rebecca Lenkiewicz.

Léa Seydoux (No Time to Die, Blue is the Warmest Colour) excels as the three Gabrielles at the heart of this dark and ambitious time-switching love story, innovatiely adapted from a Henry James novella. 

It’s 2044 and AI has taken over – Gabrielle must submit to DNA purification to purge herself of past trauma. Whether in Belle Epoque Paris where she’s a successful pianist, or 2014 as an aspiring model/actress house-sitting in LA, she and Louis (George MacKay – 1917, Captain Fantastic) keep meeting and parting like cuckoo clock figures fated to repeat the same doomed romance.  Bonelli’s ambiguous, disturbing vision maintains an uneasy sense of dread in this bravura star-crossed sci-fi ride.

Exclusively released for preview at From Page To Screen by Vertigo Releasing.
