New Wave Films have released the UK Trailer  for the psychological thriller Rosie Plays Julie. Joe Lawlor and Christine Molloy’s film made it’s premiere back at 2019 BFI London Film Festival, now it’s ready for it’s theatrical release.

The film stars Ann Skelly as a young woman who was a an orphan when she was a child. She traces her birth mother only to be rejected once again. However she quickly learns a dark secret behind her conception.

As an only child, Rose has enjoyed a loving relationship with her adoptive parents. However, for as long as she can remember she has wanted to know who her biological parents are and the facts of her true identity. After years trying to trace her birth mother, Rose now has a name and a number. When she contacts her birth mother, it quickly becomes clear that her birth mother has no wish to have any contact. Rose is shattered. As a renewed and deepened sense of rejection compels her, she travels from Dublin to London in an effort to confront her birth mother, Ellen.

Ellen is deeply disturbed when Rose turns up unannounced, but eventually feels forced to reveal a secret she has kept hidden for over 20 years. This shocking revelation forces Rose to accept the violent nature of how she came into existence and she sets out to confront her biological father, Peter. What Rose cannot possibly foresee is that she is on a collision course that will prove both violent and unsettling – dark forces gather and threaten to destroy her already fragile sense of her own identity.

The film also stars Orla Brady and Aidan Gillen.

Rosie Plays Julie will be released in the UK and Ireland in May.
