All Good Children

Shot entirely in France, in the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region in August and the first half of September, UK director Alicia Duffy’s debut feature All Good Children is now in post-production.

Co-produced by Ireland, France and Belgium, this psychological thriller has a cast including young actors Imogen Jones, David Brazil, Jack Gleeson and Austin Moulton.

Written by the director and based on Sam Taylor’s novel The Republic of Trees, All Good Children centres on Dara and Eoin, two young Irish children of 11 and 12, who have to go and live at their aunt’s house in France, following their mother’s suicide.

Eoin soon tries to run away. Terrified at the idea of being abandoned, Dara (Gleeson) seeks comfort from young English neighbour Bella (Imogen Jones). Between them a friendship forms, turning into a true obsession for Dara.

Realising his feelings are not reciprocated, the boy retreats to the forest. Reality and dream merge and he soon sinks into madness.

Jack Gleeson (soon to be seen as Joffrey in the highly-anticipated HBO pilot Game of Thrones) stars as Dara.

David Brazil (Pamela Hughes Drama School) plays his older brother Eoin.

Newcomer Imogen Jones plays Bella with Austin Moulton (Mark Jermin Management) as her young brother Theo.

The title will be released theatrically by Shellac in France, Cinéart in Belgium and Element Pictures in Ireland. International sales are currently under negotiation and the film should be ready for release in spring 2010.
