“Like a romantic comedy with all the bulls**t taken out” IndieWire

Award-winning new film DAPHNE starring Emily Beecham (HAIL, CAESAR!) opens in cinemas across the UK on Friday 29th September. 

Daphne is a young woman negotiating the tricky business of modern life. Caught in the daily rush of her restaurant job and a nightlife kaleidoscope of new faces, she is witty, funny, the life of the party. Too busy to realise that deep down she is not happy. When she saves the life of a shopkeeper stabbed in a failed robbery, the impenetrable armour she wears to protect herself begins to crack, and Daphne is forced to confront the inevitability of a much-needed change in her life.

“A film of compassion and soul, with a protagonist at its heart who’s sometimes hard to like but easy to adore.” ★★★★ - The Skinny

Directed by Mackie Burns who co-wrote alongside Nico Mensinga, Daphne also stars Geraldine James (THE GIRL WITH DRAGON TATTOO), Tom Vaughan-Lawlor (PEAKY BLINDERS) and Nathaniel Martello-White and was produced by Valentina Brazzini and Tristan Goligher (45 YEARS, LEAN ON PETE).
