Verve Pictures new acquisition 'Benny & Jolene'


We're pleased to annouce we'll be releasing Jamie Adams' feature debut 'Benny & Jolene', starring Craig Roberts (Submarine and the forthcoming Neighbors, alongside Seth Rogen and Zac Efron) and Charlotte Ritchie (Fresh Meat) as and up and coming folk duo.
19 year old Jolene is having trouble convincing her writing partner Benny to become more commercial. Too many industry types get involved, leaving Jolene feeling dazed and confused, and Benny marginalised. 

Now they are on a crowded tour bus on their way to a festival in the most beautiful, yet remote, location - forcing them to confront their ambicions and emotions for the first time. 

Can they both get back to where they once belonged, and move forward together, or will all be lost in the noise and confusion? 

Ritchie stars as the eponymous Jolene opposite Roberts, with the two joined by Rosamund Hanson, Tom Rosenthal, Dolly Wells, Ian Smith, Nick Mohammed, Laura Patch, and Keiron Self. Adams directs from his own script, and also serves as producer alongside executive producer, Jon Rennie. 
Benny & Jolene will receive it's UK premiere at the LOCO London Comedy Film Festival in January 2014 and will open in cinemas in the UK in the Spring.
