EXCLUSIVE: Here’s an intriguing first look at Ruth Wilson (The Affair) and Tom Burke (The Souvenir) in Harry Wootliff’s Venice-bound feature drama True Things.
Wilson plays a young woman living on the fringes of society who becomes intoxicated by a stranger who overwhelms her quiet life. Above is also a new still from the Brit movie, which will unspool next month on the Lido in the Horizons strand.
Le Bureau Sales are selling True Things, which is an adaptation of Deborah Kay Davies’ book True Things About Me, based on a script by Wootliff and Molly Davies. Producers are Tristan Goligher (Supernova), Ruth Wilson, Jude Law (The Talented Mr Ripley) and Ben Jackson (The Young Pope).
The film is Wootliff’s follow-up to the BAFTA-nominated and BIFA-winning romantic drama Only You, which starred Laia Costa and Josh O’Connor.
Wilson produces via her production company Lady Lazarus, previously called Pear Shape Productions; and Ben Jackson and Jude Law through their production banner Riff Raff UK. Pic was developed with BBC Films. Financiers are BBC Film and the BFI. Picturehouse will release in the UK.
