After making its world premiere at this year's Edinburgh International Film Festival (read our review here), Niall MacCormick's first feature film Albatross is making its way to UK screens this October. And in the run up to that The Guardian has exclusively debuted the first trailer.
The drama-comedy (or "dramedy" as the kids are calling it these days) stars the likes of Jessica Brown Findlay (Downton Abbey), Felicity Jones (Page Eight, The Tempest) and Sebastian Koch (The Lives of Others). It centers on a troubled girl (Findlay) who enters into the lives of an author (Koch) and his family who run a seaside hotel.
When I saw the film at the EIFF 2011 I predicted it would be one of the most talked about British films of the year, and I stand by that assertion. Check out the first trailer below.
