Without wasting the given opportunity, Amazon laid it’s hands-on “Herself” which is an inspirational Irish drama directed by Phyllida Lloyd. The movie screened at the Sundance film festival 2021 that is where Amazon got its North American right. Moreover, later this year the studios might do its theatrical release.
The premier was well-received and got amazing reviews at the 2021 Sundance festival. The story revolved around a mother with two children who flee from her boyfriend and later finds herself stuck inside a broken housing system. She tries to fix the system and starts to rebuild her life by constructing her own home. During the process she gets help from various sources and, in the end, she rediscovers herself.
The story is heart-wrenching and perfectly compiled and that is exactly why it got screened at the 2021 Sundance film festival which is an ideal platform for original storytellers.
