From IFC Films and celebrated Danish filmmaker Kristian Levring (The King Is Alive) comes THE INTENDED, a moodily atmospheric, sexually charged epic that has been lauded “a taut noirish thriller that unfolds in a fever of firelit ambience” (Village Voice). Inspired by cinema’s controversial Dogme 95 movement (co-founded by Levring and such acclaimed auteurs as Dogville’s Lars von Trier), THE INTENDED has drawn comparisons to the literary masterworks of Joseph Conrad and Tennessee Williams.
In 1924, the strong and idealistic Sarah (co-writer Janet McTeer of Tumbleweeds) and her younger lover Hamish (JJ Field of Poirot: Death on the Nile) flee the depression of post-war Europe, travelling deep into the Malaysian jungle to earn their fortune at an ivory trading post. Instead of an exotic retreat, however, the two encounter an oppressively small colony where there is no escape when the river runs dry. Despite their best intentions, the influence of the couple’s high hopes and obvious love for each other unleashes upon the community a downward spiral of greed, murder, and madness: a lyrical tragedy where everyone is the victim of each other’s broken dreams.
Gripping, intimate, and heavily stylized, THE INTENDED co-stars Olimpia Dukakis (Armistead Maupin’s Tales of the City), Brenda Fricker (My Left Foot), and Tony Maudsley (Bright Young Things).
