Amy Hobby and Anne Hubbell’s female-centric banner Tangerine Entertainment works hard to put women’s pictures front and center. They’re currently exec producing “The Erotic Fire of the Unattainable,” with Harry Hamlin (“Mad Men”) and Finnish superstar Irina Bjorklund (“The American”) set to star, and with Courtney Andrialis and Suzy Franczak Davis on board as the film's main producers.

Brazilian-born still photographer and short filmmaker Emilia Ferreira makes her feature directing debut with veteran cinematographer Lisa Rinzler (“Pollock”) shooting the feature in New York. Gay Walley adapted the screenplay from her book of aphorisms of the same title. Rounding out the cast are Edoardo Ballerini and Margot Bingham (both from “Boardwalk Empire”) and Kevin Kilner (“House of Cards”).

Here’s the official synopsis:

The Erotic Fire Of The Unattainable is an unflinching, slyly humorous journey through a woman's mind - a complicated, sensuous world of lovers and ex-husbands, travel and solitude, money and inner rebellion.
