Blueprint Pictures is currently developing a new feature film, “Girl From The North Country,” inspired by the songs of the legendary singer/songwriter Bob Dylan.
With Graham Broadbent and Pete Czernin as producers, Conor McPherson as writer and director, and a talented cast including Chlöe Bailey, Tosin Cole, Olivia Colman, and Woody Harrelson, the film promises to be a stunning and emotional journey through the Great Depression.
A Love Story Set in a Time of Adversity
The film takes place in Duluth, Minnesota in 1934, during the Great Depression, and follows the intersecting lives of a group of travelers as they find shelter in a guest house. The guest house is owned by Nick Laine (Harrelson), whose wife Elizabeth (Colman) is suffering from dementia, and the bank is about to foreclose on their home. Their adopted daughter, Marianne (Bailey), has a secret that no one can explain, but everything changes when an escaped convict Joe Scott (Cole) seeks shelter at the guesthouse and a relationship develops between Marianne and Joe.
Reimagining Bob Dylan’s Songs
The film reimagines 20 of Bob Dylan’s legendary songs, including “Forever Young,” “All Along the Watchtower,” “Hurricane,” “Slow Train Coming,” “Make You Feel My Love,” and “Like a Rolling Stone.” The film is said to be a “love story set in a time of adversity,” and its narrative style is inspired by Dylan’s song lyrics, which are known for their emotional depth and storytelling. This film promises to bring the music of Bob Dylan to life on the big screen in a way that has never been seen before.
Collaboration between Writer and Producers
Conor McPherson, the writer and director of “Girl From The North Country,” has previously worked with producers Graham Broadbent and Pete Czernin on other projects, including the critically acclaimed “The Imitation Game.” McPherson is also known for his work in the theater, where he has written and directed numerous plays that have received critical acclaim. This collaboration between McPherson, Broadbent, and Czernin promises to bring a fresh perspective to the film and bring Bob Dylan’s songs to life in a new and exciting way.
Talented Cast and Production Studios
The film stars a talented cast of actors, including Chlöe Bailey, Tosin Cole, Olivia Colman, and Woody Harrelson. Bailey is known for her work in the music industry, having recently been nominated for a Grammy award, while Cole is best known for his role in the popular BBC series “Doctor Who.” Colman is a seasoned actor, having won numerous awards for her work in film, television, and theater, including an Oscar for her role in “The Favourite.” Harrelson, who has been nominated for several Academy Awards, is known for his work in films such as “The People vs. Larry Flynt,” “True Detective,” and “Zombieland.”
