Kristin Scott Thomas will make her directorial debut with the romantic drama film adaptation of Elizabeth Jane Howard’s acclaimed novel “The Sea Change”.
Scott Thomas will also star as Lillian, and Mark Strong is currently in talks to play her husband, Emmanuel in the film which is mostly set on a remote Greek island.
Lillian is a witty woman whose marriage to a successful London playwright is in crisis. With the arrival of an outspoken young girl, their relationship is put into perspective.
Filming is slated to begin later this year in Europe from a script by Rebecca Lenkiewicz (“Ida”).
