New Wave Films has dropped the latest trailer for ‘Rose Plays Julie’ which garnered rave reviews from 2019’s BFI London Film Festival.
Directed and written by Christine Molloy and Joe Lawlor the story follows an only child, Rose who has enjoyed a loving relationship with her adoptive parents. However, for as long as she can remember she has wanted to know who her biological parents are and the facts of her true identity. After years trying to trace her birth mother, Rose now has a name and a number. When she contacts her birth mother, it quickly becomes clear that her birth mother has no wish to have any contact. Rose is shattered. As a renewed and deepened sense of rejection compels her, she travels from Dublin to London in an effort to confront her birth mother, Ellen.
Ellen is deeply disturbed when Rose turns up unannounced, but eventually feels forced to reveal a secret she has kept hidden for over 20 years. This shocking revelation forces Rose to accept the violent nature of how she came into existence and she sets out to confront her biological father, Peter. What Rose cannot possibly foresee is that she is on a collision course that will prove both violent and unsettling – dark forces gather and threaten to destroy her already fragile sense of her own identity.
The film stars Ann Skelly (Death and Nightingales, Kissing Candice, Little Women), Orla Brady (Into The Badlands, The Foreigner) and Aidan Gillen (Game of Thrones, The Dark Knight Rises, Bohemian Rhapsody).
