BUTTERCUP BILL DIRECTED BY AND STARRING REMY BENNETT AND PRODUCED BY SADIE FROST AND EMMA COMLEY RELEASED THIS SUMMER BY TRINITY FILM
London: Monday 1st June 2015 – Trinity Film is delighted to announce that it will release BUTTERCUP BILL – the highly-anticipated debut feature from New York film-making duo Remy Bennett and Emilie Richard-Froozan and the first production of Sadie Frost and Emma Comley’s new outfit Blonde to Black Pictures in August 2015 in the UK.
Billed as a “Southern Gothic Romance” this impressive début is teeming with authenticity and with an incredibly compelling central performance from actor/co-director Remy Bennett (grand-daughter of Tony Bennett).
Having premiered at New Orleans, Raindance and MARFA film festivals, Buttercup Bill tells the story of a twisted romance between lifelong friends Patrick (Evan Louison – Not Dark Yet, Mariah, Blindsided) and Pernilla (Remy Bennett – The Wolf of Wall Street, Boardwalk Empire) – mutually obsessed, but clinging on to dark secrets. Travelling from the seedy, neon-lit New York bar scene to a nameless town in the sweaty and whisky-soaked Deep South, Pernilla seeks comfort from Patrick after the suicide of their childhood playmate. At first innocent and playful, their chemistry soon gives way to subversive games of sexual jealousy, making unwitting pawns of those around them. As the lines between love and cruelty, and fantasy and reality become blurred, the question looms large: can they ever be together? Should they?
BUTTERCUP BILL will be released in Cinemas, On Demand and DVD in August 2015 (date tbc).
