EXCLUSIVE: Crime drama premiered at Raindance in 2015.

Hard Tide

UK distribution outfit Metrodome has picked up Hard Tide (previously titled My Hero) for a theatrical release in April.

The crime drama, which premiered at the 2015 Raindance Film Festival, is from directing and writing duo Robert Osman and Nathanael Wiseman.

Wiseman also stars alongside Mem Ferda (Revolver), Oliver Stark (Into The Badlands) and first time actress Alexandra Newick in the story of a small time criminal who forms an unlikely friendship with a neglected young girl when the pair are forced to go on the run.

UK rapper Mic Righteous produced original music for the film alongside composer Si Begg.

Hard Tide marks the debut feature of London/Oslo-based production outfit Redeeming Features, which was launched last year by Katarina Gellin, Gary Thomson and Wiseman.

Aldamisa Entertainment handles the film’s worldwide sales rights.
