Rebecca Daly’s fiction film Good Favour will premiere at this year's Toronto International Film Festival (taking place from the 7th – 17th September).
Good Favour follows a young man named Tom, who, on a glaring hot day, walks out of an immense forest into the lives of a strictly devout Christian community carving out a remote existence in central Europe. He seems to have come from nowhere. The only physical sign of his life before is the wound on his torso that refuses to heal.
The film is directed by Rebecca Daly, who co wrote with Glen Montgomery, Good Favour was produced by John Keville and Conor Barry of Savage Productions (Ireland) and Benoit Roland for Wrong Men (Belgium). The film is co-produced by Monica Hellström and Signe Byrge Sørensen for Final Cut for Real (DK) and Marleen Slot for Viking Films (NL).
The main characters in the film are played by the Danish actors Lars Brygmann, Clara Rugaard, Alexandre Willaume, Baard Owe and Marie Louise Coninck.
The visual effects are made by Peter Hjorth in collaboration with TGBVFX ODE, who are based in Funen, Denmark. The film is supported by The Danish Film Institute, FilmFyn and DR.
