Trailer, poster for Albatross, starring Sebastian Koch, Julia Ormond, Felicity Jones, Jessica Brown Findlay
The Niall MacCormick drama opens in theaters via IFC Films on January 2nd, but you can watch it on SundanceNOW right now. Albatross is the story of Emelia Conan-Doyle (Jessica Brown Findlay, Downton Abbey), a cheeky force of nature and the 17 year old heir to the legacy of Arthur Conan Doyle. Harboring an ambition to follow in the literary footsteps of her grandfather, Emelia writes while working at a stuffy seaside hotel populated by another blocked novelist Jonathan (Sebastian Koch), his put-upon wife (Julia Ormond) and their daughter Beth (Felicity Jones, Like Crazy).
Instigating a whirlwind of change, Emilia first befriends and emancipates the bookish daughter Beth (Jones), alarms her career frustrated mother (Ormond), before bewitching Jonathan himself.
Tamzin Rafn wrote the script for the film produced by Adrian Sturgess. Check out the trailer and the poster under that. If you want to see the film before its release date, be sure to Watch Albatross on SundanceNOW!
