Daphne

'Daphne' is the vibrant character portrait of a young woman on the threshold of a much-needed change.

Daphne is a 2017 British drama film directed by Peter Mackie Burns and written by Nico Mensinga. The film stars Emily Beecham, Geraldine James, Nathaniel Martello-White, Osy Ikhile, Sinead Matthews and Stuart McQuarrie.

The film premiered at the International Film Festival Rotterdam on 29 January 2017 and garnered positive reviews. "Led by Emily Beecham's note-perfect performance, Daphne is a vivid portrait of a woman in flux - and an auspicious narrative debut for director Peter Mackie Burns"

‘The film finally adds up to more than the sum of its well-wrought parts, offering a quietly profound insight into this young woman's attempt to navigate a world that is both familiar and brutally alien.’ Sight and Sound

‘It's one of the best films about London living I can recently recall.’ Daily Telegraph (UK)

‘Mackie Burns handles the tale like a seasoned pro, and Beecham is terrifically watchable throughout.’ The Herald (Scotland)
