ALICE, the debut feature film from multiple award-winning writer and director Josephine Mackerras, will be released on selected digital platforms from this Friday.
Happily married Alice's (Emilie Piponnier) life is turned upside down when she discovers her husband (Martin Swabey) has spent all their money on prostitutes and they are now a year behind on their mortgage. In a last-ditch bid to support herself and her child, Alice becomes a high-end escort, which challenges her perceptions of life and love. At times bitterly funny but always brutally honest, the film traces Alice's journey to her own kind of freedom.
Writer-director Josephine Mackerras' powerful debut feature won the Grand Jury Award at last year's SXSW, and the Spirit of The Festival Award at the 27th Raindance Film Festival, and stars Emilie Piponnier in a breakout performance.
Alice will be released on selected digital platforms (Curzon Home Cinema, The BFI Player, Barbican Cinema On Demand, Amazon Prime Video) from Friday. The official trailer is at the link above.
