The highly anticipated Buttercup Bill will celebrate its London Premiere on 1st September at Curzon Soho, ahead of its theatrical release on Friday 4th September.
Buttercup Bill is directed by Remy Bennett and Emilie Richard-Froozan.
The film follows mutually obsessed friends struggling to find something like love beneath the wreckage of a broken past. After the suicide of a childhood playmate, Pernilla (Remy Bennett) loiters in the seedy underbelly of New York’s nightlife until she calls on estranged Patrick (Evan Louison) and arrives on the doorstep of his isolated Louisiana cabin.
Shut in there together, surrounded by the peeling walls of Southern religion and the bottle, they re-light what they once had. What is at first innocent and playful gives way to cruel games of sexual jealousy as the pair attempt to reconcile a terrible secret that haunts them both.
What’s interesting about this production is that it had a crew made up entirely of women.
The premiere will feature a discusion about women in film, with producer Sadie Frost and the filmmakers, which will be hosted by Edith Bowman.
The premiere’s afterparty will celebrate the film’s release with a DJ set from Florence & The Machine’s Chris Hayden.
BUTTERCUP BILL is in UK cinemas and On Demand on 4 September and available on DVD in October.
