British LGBT drama DEPARTURE, with a breakout performance by Alex Lawther (The Imitation Game) will be released on DVD / VOD on March 7th in the U.S. and Canada via Wolfe Video.
An intimate and restrained story of an English mother (Juliette Stevenson) and her son, a fifteen year old dreamy eyed would-be writer (Alex Lawther) who is exploring his dawning sexuality. When they take an emotional journey to the South of France, they become embroiled in a love triangle with a rugged, handsome French boy. Both mother and son are compelled to confront their own desire, family secrets, and a complicated relationship with each other.
Set amidst ravishing landscapes of Southern France, DEPARTURE creates a sophisticated emotional and aesthetic palette to create a cinematic meditation on language, silence, and secrets. Written & directed by acclaimed British filmmaker Andrew Steggall, DEPARTURE is his feature directorial debut.
