Set in London, the darkish romance is primarily based on Freeman and Choon Ping’s brief-film of the exact same identify and follows the life of Jules, whose life and job as a drag queen is ruined in a humiliating homophobic assault. When he re-encounters a person of his attackers in a homosexual sauna, the deeply closeted Preston, he is offered with a chance to exact revenge. Unrecognizable in his boy sort, Jules insinuates himself into Preston’s daily life and what unfolds is a unsafe seduction that hazards discovery and backlash at each moment.
The function is created by Agile Movies, who formerly produced the shorter movie, which won a British Unbiased Film Award for Ideal British Small Film last 12 months. Producers are Agile’s Myles Payne and Sam Ritzenberg. Hayley Williams will co-generate. Femme is co-financed by BBC Movie and Anton. Exec producers are Eva Yates for BBC Film, Marnie Podos and Anton’s Sebastien Raybaud and Cecile Gaget.
