BUTTERCUP BILL produced by Sadie Frost to Celebrate its London Premiere on 1st Sept at Curzon Soho
Today Trinity Film is delighted to announce that its film BUTTERCUP BILL – the highly-anticipated debut feature from New York film-making duo Remy Bennett and Emilie Richard-Froozan and the first production of Sadie Frost and Emma Comley’s new outfit Blonde to Black Pictures – will celebrate its London Premiere on 1st September at Curzon Soho ahead of its theatrical release on Friday 4th September.
With a unique women-only film crew, Buttercup Bill’s premiere will feature a screen talk to discuss women in film with Sadie Frost and filmmakers which will be hosted by Edith Bowman. The premiere’s afterparty will celebrate the film’s release with a DJ set from Chris Hayden (Florence & The Machine).
Having premiered at New Orleans, Raindance and MARFA film festivals, Buttercup Bill follows mutually obsessed friends struggling to find something like love beneath the wreckage of a broken past. After the suicide of a childhood playmate, Pernilla (Remy Bennett) loiters in the seedy underbelly of New York’s nightlife until she calls on estranged Patrick (Evan Louison) and arrives on the doorstep of his isolated Louisiana cabin.
Shut in there together, surrounded by the peeling walls of Southern religion and the bottle, they re-light what they once had. What is at first innocent and playful gives way to cruel games of sexual jealousy as the pair attempt to reconcile a terrible secret that haunts them both.
With a breakthrough performance from lead and co-director Remy Bennett (grand-daughter of Tony Bennett), Buttercup Bill is a stylish, provocative and unflinching portrayal of infatuation rusted with guilt.
Co-founder/ director of Trinity Film, Cedric Behrel said: “Once again we’re proud to present another exciting debut by talented, promising and all-female film-makers such as Remy, Emilie, Emma and Sadie. Whether in breakthrough films like Import/ Export or Incendies, or debuts such as The Comedian and Involuntary, we have always been motivated by discovery and offering the audience something bold, uncharted and that carries an element of fear and desire, and Buttercup Bill is just that.”
Sadie Frost and Emma Comley from Blonde to Black Pictures said: “For our first feature to be premiered at the Curzon Soho is a dream, our favourite Soho cinema. To have Trinity behind the release and the support of Women In Film & TV, we couldn’t be happier. For our first film to get such a good reception and reaching a wide audience we feel very proud as female film makers, with a very strong team creatively and financially around us”
BUTTERCUP BILL is in UK cinemas and On Demand on 4 September and available on DVD in October.
