Shirley Adams Trailer


From director Oliver Hermanus, the lovely trailer for latest from Dv8 & Centropolis.
Beautifully scored and shot, and Denise Newman's performance looks gritty, brittle & epically soulful.

Indie cinema at it's best - for some reason this reminds me of Vera Drake. Certainly it's not the plot or the period, but perhaps the quietly observed, slightly tragic character hiding at the centre of the plot, and probably the title implying that the character is the real story behind the story. 
  

Wish I could find a bigger poster, but visit the site at http://www.shirleyadamsmovie.com/ for more.
(The 'mother, victim, rebel' tag on the site is certainly intruiging)
