I'll Find You

directing by MARTHA COOLIDGE

Film

Is any love more tender than young love, or more agonizing when threatened by extinction from outside forces? Shakespeare's classic paradigm finds contemporaneity in I'll Find You, a new film directed by Martha Coolidge. Instead of Romeo and Juliet in Renaissance Verona, we find Robert and Rachel in mid-20th Century Europe - ensnared by the tumult of World War II. "I'll find you" is an uncommon love story; its romantic heartbeat is sustained by the love of music that draws its characters together. It's the 1930ies. Two young lovers, ROBERT, a catholic opera singer and RACHEL, a Jewish violin virtuoso, dream of one day performing together at the legendary Carnegie Hall. When they're torn apart by the German invasion of Poland, Robert vows to find Rachel, no matter what.

"I'll Find You", shortly before it was finished, received an invitation from the Taormina Film Fest 2019 to be the closing ceremony film. During the spectacular ceremony, Martha Coolidge – the director of "I'll Find You" - received the Taormina Arte Award. Just a few weeks later, the film opened the Transatlantyk Film Festival 2019 and at the Energa Camerimage Festival 2019 it was screened in the category Contemporary World Cinema. Other festival invitations are arriving.

Cast

"I'll Find You" has an excellent international cast. Robert and Rachel, main characters, were played respectively by Leo Suter, a rising star from Great Britain and by Adelaide Clemens, talented Australian who already appeared in such exceptional movies as "The Great Gatsby" or "Generation Um". Ursula Parker from New York and Sebastian Croft from London (nominated in 2019 for junior BAFTA) played Robert and Rachel as children.
In the leading supporting roles have appeared: Stellan Skarsgård, one of the favorite actors of Lars von Trier, known to a broader audience because of his roles in "Pirates of the Caribbean", "Mamma Mia" and the TV series "Chernobyl", for which he has won the Golden Globe award, Connie Nielsen, the lead actress in Gladiator and the Queen Hippolyta in "Wonder Woman" as well as Stephen Dorff, the hero of such movies as "Blade" and "Somewhere".
