COMEDY WESTERN 'DAMSEL'
STARRING ROBERT PATTINSON AND MIA WASIKOWSKA
A number of period set movies will hit upcoming movie festivals and we have first photos today! DAMSEL will air both at Sundance and Berlin Film Festival. It sees Robert Pattinson playing Samuel, a wealthy and
influential pioneer who traveled across west American Frontiers to marry love of his life Penelope (Mia Wasikowska). Along the journey, he was aided by a
drunkard and a miniature horse named Butterscotch. As Samuel continued on his quest, he encountered many obstacles and soon the lines between heroes, damsels and villains are blurred.

SET DURING GREAT FAMINE
Berlin will also see the premiere of Irish revenge story BLACK 47, set during the Great Famine, in which James Frecheville plays Feeney, an Irish
Ranger who has been fighting for the British Army abroad, but he abandons his post to reunite with his family. Despite experiencing the horrors of war, he
is shocked by the famine's destruction of his homeland and the brutalization of his people and his family. He swears vengeance. His old British Army
comrade Hannah (played by Hugo Weaving) is then dispatched to put an end to Feeney's uprising.
