Saskia Rosendahl Lore

After a fairly successful premieres on the festival scene throughout the year and the unveiling of a beautiful trailer, Cate Shortland's "Lore" is developing momentum ahead of its Australian theatrical release. We now have two stunning new clips from the film, which has also been annouced as Australia's entry for consideration for the Best Foreign Language Film at the Academy Awards.

An adaptation of Rachel Seiffert's novella "The Dark Room," the German-language post-WWII road film stars newcomer Saskia Rosendahl as the daughter of an SS officer who must take her four siblings on a 900km journey across war-ravaged Germany to the safety of their grandparents' residence. Our TIFF review described Shortland's work as "a film of great craft, strongly performed by the cast across the board, and particulary by the lead, newcomer Saskia Rosendahl [that] never lets the audience in close enough for it to be a truly embraceable picture." Particular compliments were also paid to DoP Adam Arkapaw, who previously worked on other festival favourites David Michod's "Animal Kingdom" and Justin Kurzal's "Snowtown."

"Lore" doesn't have North American release date as of yet though it's been picked up by Music Box Films. The film does, however, hit Australian theaters next week before playing at the London Film Festival next month.
