The twisted tale of sibling rivalry, sexual awakening and mind games stars Anna Madeley (In Bruges [+see also:

Strawberry Fields will be released in April 2012 as part of Soda Pictures’ New British Cinema Quarterly (NCBQ) platform.
Adrian Wootton, Chief Executive of Film London and the British Film Commission, said, “We are delighted to be working with Soda for the first time and are confident that under their excellent New British Cinema Quarterly platform, they will guide this wonderful film to its audience. Our slate of features to date includes a diverse range of films, across genres, themes and styles, and the fact they have all found distributors is the best indication of the scheme’s success. I am very pleased we are able to continue this scheme with the support of our funders BBC Films, Skillset and the Mayor of London.”
Soda Pictures Managing Director Edward Fletcher said, “Film London’s benchmark Microwave scheme continues to deliver engaging films for audiences. Brimming with new talent, Strawberry Fields will be a perfect addition to Soda’s third year NBCQ line up.”
