Helen Walsh the writer / director of the well received ‘The Violators’ will again direct a new film ‘The Lemon Grove’ based on her novel of the same name. Red Union Films who produced ‘The Violators’ will once again team up with Walsh. Filming will take place next summer.
The plot revolves around a husband and wife who return to the island of Mallorca annually for a summer holiday. One year, the arrival of the wife’s stepdaughter and her new boyfriend threatens to upset the status quo.
Red Union Film’s David Moores commented: “The Violators showcased Helen Walsh as one of UK cinema’s outstanding new talents. We at Red Union are very happy to be teaming with Helen once more in bringing this wonderful and sensuous novel to the screen.”
Walsh added: “I’m excited at the prospect of bringing this sultry and transgressive love story to life. Mallorca is a film-maker’s dream and I look forward to evoking its vistas, sunsets, cliffs and coves – and its lemon groves, of course – on an even bigger canvas.”
