A Bird Flew In, starring Sadie Frost and Derek Jacobi, has been bought by Studio Soho International and has been presented at the Cannes Film Market.

The film marks the directorial debut of Kirsty Bell, the founder of Goldfinch Entertainment. Ben Charles Edwards will be producing the movie with Phil McKenzie serving as executive producer. Along with Sadie Frost and Derek Jacobi – Morgana Robinson, Jeff Fahey, Frances Barber, Julie Dray, Sophie Kennedy Clark and Camilla Rutherford will also be starring in the movie.

The film is set in the United Kingdom’s COVID-19 lockdown and is made up of seven interconnected episodes. The whole cast and crew of a major picture is sent home – alone. There are now only performers with no audience, production workers with no set, and directors with no script. Couples break up, others reconcile, and others find themselves alone.

The film has received several festival screenings and honours. Kristy Bell was named European Breakthrough Director of the Year at the Capri Hollywood International Film Festival, as well as best female filmmaker at the Vancouver Independent Film Festival, where the movie also won award for cinematography.

On May 31, The Brid Flew In will kick off the Monaco Streaming Film Festival. It will be released in the United Kingdom in July via Studio Soho Distribution.

Other notable Goldfinch projects include Ronnie’s, a look at the person behind London’s jazz club Ronnie Scott’s, and horror Father of Flies, directed by Ben Charles Edwards.

According to Variety, Sadie Frost’s next feature Twiggy will be produced by Soho Talent, a division of Film Soho, and Sadie Frost’s new production business Reel Time.
