YES – oh, man…. it was a… memorable experience to say the least!
Incredible cast, crew – a true team collaboration. Everyone said I was spoiled for life as sets are rarely that all round amazing!
Anyway here is a little bit of info from the Variety:
“It is the true story of Louisa Gould, who is played by Seagrove. Set during World War II on the Nazi-occupied island of Jersey, Lou takes in an escaped Russian prisoner of war – Bill, played by Julian Kostov – and hides him over the course of the war. Tension mounts as it becomes clear that Churchill will not risk an assault to re-capture the British soil, and the island-community spirit begins to fray under pressures of hunger, occupation and divided loyalty.
The film is directed by two time BAFTA winner Chris Menaul, who was Emmy-nominated this year for “Killing Jesus,” from a screenplay by Jenny Lecoat. It will shoot for six weeks across the South-West of England.
Producer Bill Kenwright said: “ ‘Another Mother’s Son’ is a powerful story that celebrates the bravery of one woman, determined to protect a young man’s life against the context of the Nazi occupation of Jersey. We are thrilled to have such an accomplished and diverse cast coming together to tell Louisa Gould’s story for the first time on film.”
Ronan Keating, who takes on the role of Harold, most recently appeared as Guy in the stage production in London of “Once.” His debut lead film role was in 2013’s “Goddess,” directed by Mark Lamprell.
John Hannah’s credits include “The Mummy” film franchise, “Four Weddings and a Funeral,” and television’s “Damages” and “Spartacus”; while Amanda Abbington has been in “Sherlock” and “Mr. Selfridge.” Susan Hampshire was in “Monarch of the Glenn” and “The Forsyte Saga,” and Peter Wight was in “Another Year” and “Babel.” The film also introduces Julian Kostov, soon to be seen in feature film epic “Ben-Hur.”
