Bad Behaviour

After a decade in front of the camera  Alice Englert got more into the family business getting behind the camera to make her feature debut. After a couple of shorts under her belt, the Australian enlisted Jennifer Connelly, Ben Whishaw (who appeared in Englert’s short Family Happiness), Ana Scotney, Dasha Nekrasova, Karan Gill, Marlon Williams and Englert herself on a project set in New Zealand. Production on Bad Behaviour took place in June of last year – this tale about splitting the family nucleus in two was produced by Desray Armstrong and Molly Hallam.

Gist: This is a dark comedy about Lucy (Connelly), a former child actress who seeks enlightenment at a retreat led by spiritual leader Elon (Whishaw) while she also navigates the close yet turbulent relationship with her stunt performer daughter, Dylan (Englert).

Release Date/Prediction: The film is slotted for Sundance’s World Cinema Dramatic Competition. Jane Campion might be sitting in that first audience.
