Eureka acquire rights to ALICE, writer-director Josephine Mackerras’ powerful debut feature

Eureka Entertainment have acquired all UK & Irish rights to the French / Australian film, ALICE, writer-director Josephine Mackerras’s powerful debut feature which won the Grand Jury Award at SXSW, and has recently won the ‘Spirit of The Festival Award’ at the 27th Raindance Film Festival.

Happily married Alice’s (Emilie Piponnier) life is turned upside down when she discovers her husband (Martin Swabey) has spent all their money on prostitutes and they are now a year behind on their mortgage. In a last-ditch bid to support herself and her child, Alice becomes a high-end escort, which challenges her perceptions of life and love. At times bitterly funny but always brutally honest, the film traces Alice’s journey to her own kind of freedom

“France’s answer to Carey Mulligan (…) Piponnier dominates every frame with a mesmerizing screen presence.” – Indiewire

ALICE will be screening at the following festivals in the UK & Ireland over the coming month: Brighton’s Cine-City , The Cork International Film Festival and the Bath Film Festival  and is expected to have a wider theatrical release in 2020 before joining the Montage Pictures range – a home video label which celebrates ground-breaking and thought-provoking cinema from new and upcoming directors from around the world.
