Breaking Glass Pictures has acquired the U.S. rights to Rebecca Daly’s third feature, Good Favour, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this year.
The film follows a young man named Tom who walks out of an immense forest into the lives of a strictly devout Christian community carving out a remote existence in central Europe. As Tom is initiated into their farming life and scriptural regime, he discovers the community is suffering a crisis of faith following a devastating loss.
The film is written by Daly with her writing partner Glenn Montgomery, with whom she wrote The Other Side of Sleep and Mammal. It stars Vincent Romeo, Lars Brygmann, Clara Rugaard, Alexandre Willaume, Victoria Mayer, and Helena Coppejans.
Good Favour is produced by John Keville and Conor Barry of Savage Productions alongside Benoit Roland of Wrong Men, and Monica Hellstrom, Signe Byrge Sorensen, and Marleen Slot. It was financed by the Irish Film Board with the support of Wallonia le Centre du Cinéma et de L’audiovisuel de la Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles, the Danish Film Institute, and Netherlands Film Fund with support by FilmFyn.
This deal was brokered by Visit Films’ Ryan Kampe and Lydia Rodman with Rich Wolff on behalf of Breaking Glass Pictures. Wildcard Distribution will release the film in Ireland next year.
