Exclusive: Nymphomaniac star joins cast of Ben Wheatley’s Recorded Picture Company thriller.
Martin joins Tom Hiddleston, Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller, Luke Evans and Elisabeth Moss in the anticipated dystopian thriller which is due to get underway in Belfast in July, with Jeremy Thomas producing through Recorded Picture Company.
The in-demand actress will take on the character ‘Fay’ in the feature about the lives of an affluent community cut off from society in a luxury block of flats.
Based on a collection of fairy tales by 17th century Italian author Giambattista Basile, Martin plays the character ‘Young Dora’ in the film which explores the yearning for youth and physical beauty, generational conflict and the struggle for power.

Director: Richard Fleischer
Running Time: 90 minutes
Masters of Cinema’s new release, Violent Saturday, takes us back to a time when the gangsters were sharp, the dames were dubious and low lifes were everywhere.
Released in 1955, Richard Fleischer’s crime drama certainly doesn’t skimp on the pulp and violence (as you might expect from its title), but it leans more towards small town melodrama with some unpleasant undercurrents, than full blown film noir.
This genre merging is helped by the film’s look as much as its plot. Violent Saturday is shot both in colour and CinemaScope (an anamorphic wide lens) and presented in its original aspect ratio of 2.55:1 for home release. Add »
