Thirst Street, the darkly comic Paris-set tale of romantic obsession directed by Nathan Silver that World Premiered at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival will be released later this year by Samuel Goldwyn Films. The film stars Lindsay Burdge (“A Teacher”), Damien Bonnard (“Staying Vertical”) and is narrated by Academy Award-winner Anjelica Huston.
Thirst Street follows grief-stricken American flight attendant Gina (Burdge) on a layover in Paris, where she hooks up with nightclub bartender Jerome (Bonnard). As Gina falls deeper into lust and opts to stay in France, Jerome’s ex (Esther Garrel) reenters the picture, sending Gina on a downward spiral of miscommunication, masochism and madness.
“We are immensely excited to work with Samuel Goldwyn on the release of Thirst Street. We feel like it’s the ideal home for this French/American labor of love,” says director Nathan Silver.
