According to Inside Film, director Kim Farrant’s new film, “Angel of Mine”, will kick off production in Melbourne in April with Noomi Rapace to star. Adapted by “Lion” scribe Luke Davies and David Regal from the 2008 French film “L’Empreinte de L’Ange”, “Angel of Mine” follows a mother who, in struggling to cope with the loss of her daughter, becomes convinced a stranger’s daughter is her own. As her obsession grows, she becomes more and more entwined in the girl’s life and loses touch with reality. “What I love about this beautiful script (apart from the insanely brilliant Noomi) is that it’s about intuition. We all know what it’s like to know something deep in our bones and yet fall into the trap of doubting ourselves, and that questioning can drive us crazy,” said Farrant. “Kim Farrant is an exceptionally talented director who displayed her interest in exploring themes around motherhood and grief with her debut Strangerland,” said Screen Australia head of production Sally Caplan. “Angel of Mine is an incredible opportunity for her to establish herself internationally – directing a script by screenwriter of the moment Luke Davies, and top tier actor Noomi Rapace. This, in addition to the significant marketplace support from Fortitude and Becker, bodes well for the success of this film and the future of Kim’s career.”
