EXCLUSIVE: WestEnd Films has released a first international trailer for Brit comedy-drama Denmark, starring Rafe Spall (Prometheus), ahead of the film’s market screening in Cannes.
Adrian Shergold (Funny Cow) directs Spall who stars as Herb, a down on his luck Welshman with no job, bad neighbours and even worse prospects. Upon discovering that Danish convicts live a relatively luxurious life he could only dream of, Herb finally has something to aspire to: a life in Denmark… in prison.
Also starring are Simone Lykke (A Funny Man), Thomas Gabrielsson (A Royal Affair), Steve Speirs (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest) and Joel Fry (Game Of Thrones).
Producers are Ed Talfan (Apostle) for Severn Screen and David Aukin (Hyde Park On Hudson) for Daybreak Pictures, and is written by Jeff Murphy. BBC Films and Ffilm Cymru Wales executive produced the film. Crew includes editor Tania Reddin (Funny Cow) and DoP Ulf Brantas (The Wife).
WestEnd’s Cannes slate also includes Berlin title Mr Jones from Agnieszka Holland, starring James Norton and Vanessa Kirby, documentary This Changes Everything about the under-representation of women in the entertainment industry, featuring Meryl Streep and Cate Blanchett, and The Banishing, a horror from genre director Chris Smith.
