Buttercup Bill - A story about anything you've ever wanted in your life but could never be.

Trinity Film is delighted to announce that it will release BUTTERCUP BILL - the highly-anticipated debut feature from New York film-making duo Remy Bennett and Emilie Richard-Froozan and the first production of Sadie Frost and Emma Comley’s new outfit Blonde to Black Pictures in August 2015 in the UK.

Billed as a “Southern Gothic Romance” this impressive debut is teeming with authenticity and with an incredibly compelling central performance from actor/co-director Remy Bennett (grand-daughter of Tony Bennett).

Having premiered at New Orleans, Raindance and MARFA film festivals, Buttercup Bill tells the story of a twisted romance between lifelong friends Patrick (Evan Louison – Not Dark Yet, Mariah, Blindsided) and Pernilla (Remy Bennett – The Wolf of Wall Street,Boardwalk Empire) - mutually obsessed, but clinging on to dark secrets. Travelling from the seedy, neon-lit New York bar scene to a nameless town in the sweaty and whisky-soaked Deep South, Pernilla seeks comfort from Patrick after the suicide of their childhood playmate. At first innocent and playful, their chemistry soon gives way to subversive games of sexual jealousy, making unwitting pawns of those around them. As the lines between love and cruelty, and fantasy and reality become blurred, the question looms large: can they ever be together? Should they?

Co-founder/ director of Trinity Film, Cedric Behrel said: “Once again we’re proud to present another exciting debut by talented, promising and all-female film-makers such as Remy, Emilie, Emma and Sadie. Whether in breakthrough films like Import/ Export or Incendies, or debuts such as The Comedian and Involuntary, we have always been motivated by discovery and offering the audience something bold, uncharted and that carries an element of fear and desire, and Buttercup Bill is just that.”

Sadie Frost and Emma Comley from Blonde to Black Pictures said: "We are thrilled to be partnering with Cedric and Trinity for the release of our first feature “Buttercup Bill” in the UK this Summer. Trinity is the perfect fit for Blonde to Black and Buttercup Bill; they have released some of our favourite movies by some great directors, we love the ethos of the company and it feels like a natural union”

BUTTERCUP BILL will be released in Cinemas, On Demand and DVD in August 2015 (exact date tbc).

About Blonde To Black Pictures

Old friends and collaborators Sadie Frost and Emma Comley set up Blonde To Black Pictures in the summer of 2011. Both have numerous years of film industry experience and express a passion for developing original screenplays and new creative talent, and so it was their incentive to start up a new and inspiring company to further facilitate this ethos. Joining forces with executive producer Andrew Green, Blonde to Black Pictures has now completed two features - "Buttercup Bill" and "Set The Thames on Fire” - a dark fairytale set in a dystopian London, directed by Ben Charles Edwards and starring Noel Fielding, Sally Phillips, Lily Loveless and Frost. The film is set to go to festivals this autumn. Later this year they are due to shoot ‘Invisibles’ in Yorkshire, a caper comedy written by Scott Lyon and Stuart Tyson and directed by Lyon. Excited by future collaborations and co-productions, they are also partnering with Catalyst and Tiger Aspect on dark thriller “Eaten” about a cannibalistic celebrity chef - to be shot next year, written by Rob Green and to be directed by James Caradog.
