Picturehouse Entertainment have announced the Home Entertainment release of of French drama , Proxima. Starring Eva Green as an working mother training to be an astronaut on a year long space mission. However she attempts to balance her work and personal life putting a strain on her relationship with her young daughter.

I watched and reviewed the film earlier in the year (pre-Covid) when it opened this year’s Glasgow Film Festival. Quoting “Eva Green gives an gilt edged performance“, and “Proxima is sort of a homage to those working mothers“. An story of an mother daughter relationship, a film that surprised me with it’s intimacy and gentleness.

Picturehouse Entertainment have released a new TV Spot for the film, check it out…

Eva Green gives a career best performance in this epic and emotionally charged new drama from acclaimed director Alice Winocour. Green plays Sarah, a French astronaut training at the European Space Agency in Cologne. The only woman in the arduous programme she has been chosen to be part of the crew of a year-long space mission called ‘Proxima’. Putting enormous strain on her relationship with her daughter (played by outstanding newcomer Zélie Boulant-Lemesle), the training begins to take its toll on both as Sarah’s training progresses and the launch looms ever closer. Featuring stunning performances from the entire cast which includes Matt Dillon, Lars Eidinger and Sandra Hüller, Winocour’s new film is an unmissable cinematic experience which will take audiences on a gripping, emotional and life-affirming journey.

The film also stars Matt Dillon (Crash), Sandra Hüller (Toni Erdmann), Aleksey Fateev (Loveless) and newcomer Zélie Boulant.

PROXIMA will be released on DVD, Blu-ray & Digital from 23rd November in the UK and Ireland.
