Madman Films drop the official trailer for Blaze, helmed by Del Kathryn Barton, a coming of age genre gets re-imagined in this astonishing drama about a family in crisis.
The film stars Julia Savage, Simon Baker, Josh Lawson, Yael Stone, Sofia Hampson, and John Waters.
Simon Baker stars as the attentive single father of twelve-year-old Blaze (Julia Savage), who goes off the rails after experiencing trauma.
Colorful, creative sequences bring us into our heroine's psyche, as she channels and explores her depression, anger, and grief, looking for an appropriate way to express herself. Baker excels as the patriarch who is all too aware of society’s shortcomings and keen to protect and support his daughter’s burgeoning identity.
It is a cathartic, cleverly crafted film about a survivor, that delights the senses by fusing fantastical sequences with the authentic reality of the female lived experience.
The screenplay is written by Huna Amweero and Del Kathryn Barton. The makers will announce the release date soon.
