Carol Morley's critically-acclaimed docudrama Dreams of a Life, which stars Zawe Ashton, is already scheduled for an initial limited December 16th release in London, playing at 7 theaters (including 1 in Sheffield and another in Manchester), and will expand to several more cinemas through March 2012, though only in the UK; good news for our readers across the pond; the rest of us will have to wait and hope that the film travels.

You can also arrange to host your own screening of the film by visiting www.popupcinema.net  (only for UK folks again); as long as you can pay the licensing fee that is... 200 pounds... though any profits you make from your screening are yours to keep!

For a full listing of cities and theaters currently confirmed, visit the film's site HERE.

The film's synopsis again reads...

Nobody noticed when Joyce Vincent died in her bedsit above a shopping mall in North London in 2003. Her body wasn’t discovered for three years, surrounded by Christmas presents she had been wrapping, and with the TV still on. Newspaper reports offered few details of her life - not even a photograph. Who was she? And how could this happen to someone in our day and age- the so-called age of communication? For her film Dreams of a Life, filmmaker Carol Morley set out to find out. Joyce may have died in tragic isolation, but Morley was not going to let her be forgotten. She placed adverts in newspapers, on the Internet, and on the side of a London taxi. What she finds out is extraordinary. A range of people that once knew Joyce help to piece together a portrait of the woman that became so forgotten. “She was very sweet, beautiful looking, a bit of a mystery. We weren’t too sure where she came from. It’s almost like she was a ghost, even then.” Dreams of a Life becomes as much about the people who remember her as it is about Joyce herself.

We featured 2 or 3 clips from the film in past posts; and earlier today, a brand new trailer for the film surfaced, which I embedded below; I hope this travels:
