The UK's Renaissance Films has concluded pre-sales for Roger Michell's recently wrapped film The Mother.
Deals were closed with Concorde for Germany, Atalanta for Portugal, Odeon for Greece, Shani Films for Israel and A Film/Cinelibre for Benelux. Sony Pictures Classics picked up the film for North America during the summer.
Fully financed by BBC Films and currently in post-production the film stars Anne Reid (Liam), Daniel Craig (Road To Perdition), Cathryn Bradshaw, Steven Mackintosh and Peter Vaughan.
The film reunites director Roger Michell (Changing Lanes), writer Hanif Kureishi (Intimacy) and producer Kevin Loader (Captain Correlli's Mandolin), the team behind the BBC's Buddha Of Surburbia.
The modern drama, about a widow who embarks on an affair with her daughter's boyfriend, is produced by Free Range Films and sold by Renaissance Films.
