Central City Media is releasing Alexandra McGuinness’s She’s Missing on Sky Store, Virgin Media, iTunes, Google Play, Youtube and Amazon from 1st July following its International Premiere at the Edinburgh International Film Festival on 22nd.
Described as “a complex portrait of female friendship and small-town yearning”, the film stars Lucy Fry (Godfather of Harlem, Bright), Eiza González (Hobbs & Shaw, Godzilla vs. Kong), Josh Hartnett (Oh Lucy!, Penny Dreadful) and Christian Camargo (See, Days and Nights) and is written and directed by Alexandra McGuinness (Lotus Eaters, Riders) and produced by Anna O’Malley, Dominic Wright and Eamonn Cleary.
The plot follows Heidi and Jane who are best friends living in a small town in the desert. When Jane, a Rodeo Queen contestant and military wife goes missing Heidi, now alone in the world, must begin a search across the desert for her friend.
She digs up secrets and encounters the violence of life on the road, crossing paths with a series of unusual men and women in her search for an honest connection in a dishonest world.
McGuinness said: “I’m thrilled She’s Missing is having its International premiere at Edinburgh.
“I’ve always wanted to have a film screen there. Edinburgh has such a history of supporting artists and helping audiences discover cinema.
“I think Edinburgh’s identity as a festival is perfect for She’s Missing which is a personal film that can straddle a line between being a crowdpleaser and an art film.”
Producer Anna O’Malley added: “We are delighted to have our International Premiere of Alexandra McGuinness’s She’s Missing at Edinburgh Film Festival.
“We were lucky enough to shoot She’s Missing on location in the beautiful and formidable New Mexico with powerful performances from Lucy Fry, Eiza Gonzalez, Christian Camargo and Josh Hartnett. The film could not have been made without the support of Screen Ireland and GCI Film.”
