17 Aug 2020 : News Desk
Element Distribution has announced that Herself will premiere in Irish and UK cinemas on 30th October.

Directed by Phyllida Lloyd (The Iron Lady), Herself is a female-driven drama written by Malcolm Campbell (What Richard Did) and Clare Dunne, who also stars in the film in what is her feature debut alongside Harriet Walter (Killing Eve, Succession). 

Herself follows the story of Sandra (Clare Dunne), who on the surface of it, is a young Mum struggling to provide her two young daughters with a warm, safe, happy home to grow up in. Beneath the surface, Sandra has a steely determination to change their lives for the better and when it becomes clear that there are no other options left to her, she decides to build it herself from scratch, drawing together a community of friends to support her. Supporting cast includes Conleth Hill (Game of Thrones) and Cathy Belton (Philomena)

The feature film world premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival to strong critical acclaim in January, with Peter Debruge of Variety naming the film“The standout of the 2020 Sundance Film Festival.

HERSELF was co-developed by Element Pictures and Merman and is produced by Academy Award® nominee Ed Guiney (The Favourite, The Lobster) and Rory Gilmartin (Rosie) for Element, together with BAFTA award-winning actress, writer, producer and director Sharon Horgan (Catastrophe, Divorce). Clelia Mountford (Motherland, There She Goes) from Merman, Element Pictures’ Andrew Lowe, BBC Films’ Rose Garnett, Cornerstone Films’ Alison Thompson, Mary Burke from the BFI and Lesley McKimm from Screen Ireland are executive producers. The film was developed with BBC Films and Screen Ireland and production was backed by Screen Ireland, BBC Films and the BFI (with National Lottery funding).
