After winning praise in its native England (where it was titled FANNY LYE DELIVER’D), the film sees North American release next month.
Quiver Distribution has announced that it will release THE DELIVERED on VOD January 15. Written and directed by Thomas Clay, it stars Maxine Peake, Charles Dance (GAME OF THRONES, ALIEN3), Freddie Fox, Tanya Reynolds, Zak Adams and Peter McDonald. The synopsis: “Set on an isolated farm in Shropshire in 1657, THE DELIVERED tells the story of Fanny Lye [Peake], a woman who learns to transcend her oppressive marriage and discover a new world of possibility–albeit at great personal cost. Living a life of Puritan stricture with husband John [Dance] and young son Arthur [Adams], Fanny Lye’s world is shaken to its core by the unexpected arrival of two strangers in need, a young couple closely pursued by a ruthless sheriff and his deputy.”
