A Mistake

Despite being involved in a handful of projects (including an early departure from ’21’s Every Breath You Take 2021), it’ll have been a full fifteen years since the last time she signed off on a project. Rain (2001), Sylvia (2003) and Sunshine Cleaning (2008) filmmaker Christine Jeffs began production on her fourth feature in her native New Zealand. A book-to-film adaptation, A Mistake sees Elizabeth Banks take on the complex role of someone who’s had a monkey wrench thrown at them. Production would have taken place late last summer with GFC Films Matthew Metcalfe and Jeffs producing.

Gist: In the midst of a new scheme to publicly report surgeons’ performance, a gifted surgeon’s life is thrown into disarray as her colleagues begin to close ranks, and even her partner who is a nurse at the hospital turns her back on her.

Release Date/Prediction: We think this could be ready in time for a TIFF premiere.
