Park Circus has announced that it will release the critically acclaimed American Gothic horror The Eyes of My Mother, directed by Nicolas Pesce in UK cinemas on 24 March 2017.
Starring Kika Magalhaes, Will Brill, Clara Wong, Flora Diaz and Joey Curtis-Green, The Eyes of My Mother is the story of Francisca (Magalhaes), who has seemingly been unfazed by death from an early age, possibly because her mother, formerly a surgeon in Portugal, imbued her with a thorough understanding of the human anatomy. When tragedy shatters Francisca's family’s idyllic life in the countryside, her deep trauma gradually awakens some unique curiosities. As she grows up, her desire to connect with the world around her takes a distinctly dark form.
Nick Varley, joint-CEO of Park Circus said; “We are delighted and proud to be releasing this extraordinary film in UK cinemas and giving audiences the opportunity to experience the incredible work of first-time filmmaker Nicolas Pesce.”
The Eyes of My Mother currently has a 76% "Fresh" Score on Rotten Tomatoes out of 66 reviews, with the general consensus saying "The Eyes of My Mother uses a shocking trauma to fuel a hauntingly hypnotic odyssey whose nightmarish chill lingers long after the closing credits."
