The Ninth Cloud gets UK Digital release
THE NINTH CLOUD, Jane Spencer’s dark, philosophical drama, starring Michael Madsen, Jean-Hugues Anglade, Megan Maczko and Leo Gregory, is now available to download in the UK exclusively on iTunes.
Set in 90s London, THE NINTH CLOUD tells the story of Zena (Megan Maczko), who, trying to escape the grief of her family being killed in a plane crash, becomes infatuated with fellow American Bob (Michael Madsen), an enigmatic but failed poet, who has taken up residency in a Hackney squat. Searching for hope through Bob’s weird artistic visions, Zena sexually and emotionally collides with an array of angst-ridden IT girls and debauched men including Brett, a narcissistic socialite (Leo Gregory), and Jonny, a drink-drowning musician (Jean- Hugues Anglade). But it is to the unattainable Bob that Zena is fatally drawn to…
To celebrate the release there is a special screening at the Prince Charles Cinema, on Mon 12 February, with cast and crew present, hosted by Eye For Film’s Anton Bitel.
Director Jane Spencer said: “I am absolutely thrilled that THE NINTH CLOUD is finally being released in its home. We shot the film in London and, although it has an international cast it carries a very British sensibility, inspired by some of the UK’s great independent films”.
