Variety is exclusively reporting that Peccadillo Pictures have acquired the UK and Ireland rights for the coming-of-age drama film Cocoon.
The official synopsis for the film is as follows:
Cocoon follows Nora, a shy 14-year-old Berlin girl. She will never forget this way too hot summer. Surrounded by people with disrupted lives, from different cultures and backgrounds, she makes her way into adulthood. Nora gets her first period, falls in love with another girl, learns to stand up for herself and gets her heart broken for the first time. When summer ends, things will never be the same again for her.
Sales agent M-Appeal, who have been closing distribution deals for the film in other territories such as Czech Republic (Queer Kino), North Macedonia (CutAway), Albania (CutAway), Mexico (Bestiario Films) and Poland (ITI Neovision), have described the film as follows:
A fresh and honest take on female identity, exploring womenhood and featuring strong female characters. [Nora] learns to accept and like herself, both her emotions and her own body. A title with a strong visual concept; its captivating, delicate images are created from a clear female perspective.
Cocoon is written and directed by Leonie Krippendorff and stars Jella Haase, Lena Klenkle, Franz Hagn, Anja Schneider, Lena Urzendowsky and Elina Vildanova.
