‘Shadows’: First Trailer For Ireland-Set Thriller Which Launches At The Rome Film Festival


EXCLUSIVE: Here’s the first trailer for Ireland and Italy-produced English-language movie, Shadows, which debuts this month at the Rome Film Festival.

The Ireland-set chiller stars Saskia Reeves (Luther), Mia Threapleton, (A Little Chaos) and Lola Petticrew (A Bump Along The Way). Carlo Lavagna (Arianna) directs the Vision Distribution original with producers including Andrea Paris (The First King) and Matteo Rovere (Romulus).

The film focuses on family dynamics in a post-apocalyptic world where a mother and her two daughters must avoid contact with daylight and its shadows in order to survive. 

Reeves plays the controlling mother of two adolescent girls named Alma, played by Threapleton, who is Kate Winslet’s daughter, and Alex, played by Petticrew. The daughters try to rebel and emancipate themselves by escaping their confinement, but their relationship also becomes conflictriven. 

Rome’s Ascent Film is co-producing with Rai Cinema and Dublin-based Feline Films run by Nathalie Biancheri and Jessie Fisk, the duo behind upcoming genre film Wolf starring George MacKay and Lily-Rose Depp.

Shadows is the first English-language film internationally sold by Vision Distribution and the second English-language film released in Italy by Vision Distribution after Monolith in August of this year.
In an innovative move, the film will get play on rival Italian broadcasters Sky Italia and Rai.
