Toronto Deals: Gravitas Ventures and Variance Films Pick Up Musical Drama 'Hunky Dory'

7 September 2012 10:30 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Gravitas Ventures and Variance Films have picked up U.S. rights to the musical drama "Hunky Dory." The film stars Minnie Driver ("Good Will Hunting") and is directed by Marc Evans ("Snow Cake"). Set in a Welsh seaside town in the 1970s, the film follows a high school drama teacher (Driver) as she runs up against apathetic students and hostile townsfolk while staging a controversial production of "The Tempest."  In particular, her decision to turn the Shakespeare play into a glam-rock musical puts her at odds with her conservative neighbors.

SXSW '12 Review: At Its Best, Harmless 'Hunky Dory' Is Just That

11 March 2012 12:43 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It’s the summer of 1976, and between a conservative school administration and an unrelenting drought, things are beyond dry for Wales’ scrappier teens. It’s little wonder that they flock to the more permissive Miss Mae (Minnie Driver) and her glam-rock interpretation of Shakespeare’s "The Tempest" for the school play. Alas, "Hunky Dory" primarily concerns itself with familiar extracurricular woes and offers up much ado about nothing instead of a more rollicking or romantic coming-of-age story.

Each protagonist has their healthy amount of burdens. Mae has to contend with a “small delegation” of disgruntled faculty; to hear it from one, “self-expression doesn’t butter any parsnips” (She is just as puzzled by the remark as we are.) There’s nice guy Davy (Aneurin Barnard) harboring a crush on the play’s co-lead, Stella (Danielle Branch); bullied Kenny (Darren Evans) giving into the peer pressures of his skinhead brethren; and »
