After doing the rounds on the festival circuit, Louise Brealey’s foodie film Delicious has announced details of its UK cinema release.
The darkly comic romance – which sees the Sherlock actress star opposite Sheila Hancock and Adrian Scarborough – will be screened at selected Picture House Cinemas across the UK from Monday 30 June and made available simultaneously via iTunes, Amazon and VOD outlets, both internationally and in the UK.
Written and directed by Tammy Riley-Smith, the film features Brealey as Stella, an obsessive dieter who embarks upon a dysfunctional romance with aspiring French chef Jacques (Looking for Simon’s Nico Rogner).
Recently released from prison, Jacques arrives in London and starts working in the kitchen of volatile chef Victor Elwood (Scarborough) – a man he believes could be his father. It is in the city that he meets his neighbours, feisty OAP Patti (Hancock) and the beguiling Stella whom the newcomer plans to seduce with his culinary talent. The only problem is she shows very little interest in Jacques and even less in his food.
The project sees Brealey reunite with Sherlock composer Michael Price who is credited as one of the film’s producers.
“It’s been a thrilling experience bringing the film to fruition,” said Riley-Smith. “We are looking forward to seeing the film on the big screen and delighted to be launching on iTunes and through other media outlets to make the movie accessible to widest possible audience.”
