Having just completed another round of treatment for chronic anorexia, acclaimed war photographer Stephanie (Sian Brooke) begins working hard to reconnect with her family. Her mother Susan (Amanda Burton) is supportive but preoccupied by her forthcoming wedding to Annette (Kazia Pelka). Meanwhile Stephanie’s teenage daughter, competitive swimmer Pearl (Fabienne Piolini-Castle), is angry and full of resentment, refusing to give her mother a second chance. Stephanie will need all her strength to keep her head above water. Body of Water, formerly known as Sick(er), is written and directed by British filmmaker Lucy Brydon, making her feature directorial debut after one short film previously. This initially premiered at the Glasgow Film Festival earlier this year. Verve Pictures will release Brydon's Body of Water in select UK cinemas + on VOD (UK only) starting on October 16th coming up this fall. Anyone interested in this?
