Kaleidoscope Film Distribution has acquired international sales rights to the all-female drama “Tell That to the Winter Sea” and will represent the film at the European Film Market (EFM) in Berlin in February.

Directed by Jacqueline Bethany of “The Invisible Girl,” who co-wrote with lead actor Greta Bellamasina (“This England”), the film follows newlywed Joe and his first love, Scarlett, who reunite after years apart. Celebrate Joe’s upcoming wedding at a house in the English countryside. Bonding initially through their love of dance, Joe is now a successful dancer with a Parisian dance company, while Scarlett teaches movement at a secondary school. As Joe approaches a big change, he turns to Scarlett to share both his joy and sadness to reflect on the young women they once were and the women they are becoming.

The all-female cast includes Amber Anderson (“Peaky Blinders”), Tamsin Egerton (“St. Trinian’s”), Jessica Plummer (“The Girl Before”) and Josette Simon (“Wonder Woman”). Robert Montgomery and Sissy Kellogg produced and Peregrine Kitchener-Fellows executive produced.

Kaleidoscope CEO Spencer Pollard and producer Sulk Youth Films’ Robert Montgomery signed the deal.

Kaleidoscope Home Entertainment will be released in the UK later this year following international release and film festival commitments.

Pollard said: “‘Tale That to the Winter Sea’ promises to be an exceptional piece of filmmaking that will be thoroughly enjoyed by festival goers and audiences alike. We’ll be presenting early scenes and art from the film at the upcoming Berlin Film Market and there should be plenty of activity around the film later in the year. Because we will solidify the festival plans.”

Bethany added: “In my filmmaking career I’m most interested in exploring narratives from a female perspective that haven’t been seen before. I’m forever curious about how women come of age in our world, where social norms and heteronormative behavior dominate so much of our existence. Women’s voices need to come to the fore in the cultural conversation, pushing us to think about what it really means to be a woman. Small details of recent feminist queer cinema that have stirred my mind, challenged me and pushed my own direction.”
