Drama (2015 / 96 mins)
It’s over a year since Anna split with John and life in London seems only to be getting harder. She isn’t landing auditions and the pressure from family to make it work or call it quits is ever increasing. Dreading a future as uncertain as the present, Anna travels to Paris and to the home of her best friend Jean.
Life for Jean seems stable. He’s given up acting and is settling down with his French partner Philippe. The timing of Anna's arrival isn’t great however; Philippe’s mother is dying and it’s taking its toll on them both. Thankful for an excuse to escape, Jean dedicates his time and attention to Anna who herself is devoted to another task entirely.
Drama marks the directorial debut of Sophie Mathisen (also starring as Anna) and produced alongside sister Dominique Mathisen. The film is a truly independent venture made without government funding, incorporating an exciting mix of Australian, French and English talent, and with a team of at least 50% women.
Drama is the first feature from Little Sure Shots.
