Lotus Eaters which premiered at the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival followed by the BFI London Film Festival, will open in New York City on April 5, 2013, before expanding to Los Angeles, and additional markets on April 12th, 2013.
Lotus Eaters, filmed in London and the Irish countryside, and featuring a “pulsing” indie soundtrack,stars a cast of young up-and-comers lead by Antonia Campbell-Hughes, a former fashion model; Johnny Flynn, lead singer of the popular English folk-rock band Johnny Flynn & The Sussex Wit and Benn Northover, who appeared in a number of acclaimed films including Harry Potter And The Deathly Hollows.
The film is the directorial debut of Alexandra McGuinness, and follows a group of young Londoners as they struggle to find meaning in their lives while masking their discontent with sex, drugs, and rock ‘n roll. The story centers on ex-model and aspiring actress Alice (Antonia Campbell-Hughes) as she struggles with her relationship with Charlie (Johnny Flynn), her drug-addicted ex-boyfriend. The fashionable group of friends epitomizes a new modern “lost generation” reminiscent of Ernest Hemmingway and his cohorts.
