Corinth Films has signed with Mikra Agglia S.A. to distribute Little England, the Oscar shortlist submission from Greece for Best Foreign Language Film directed and produced by husband and wife team Pantelis Voulgaris and Ioanna Karystiani (upon whose earlier book the script is based) about a tumultuous love story that takes place in the Greek archipelago of Andros during the 1930’s amidst an industry of seafaring notorious for fracturing familial and marital bonds.
Boyd van Hoeij of The Hollywood Reporter calls it a “handsomely mounted and impeccably acted film” and “a woman’s picture in every sense of the word.”
Little England is planned for a limited theatrical release later in 2015. Read more at Neo Magazine.

The pair spend their days shifting around unsold inventory, taking smoke breaks, washing windows, and middling with employees from other stores in the strip mall.
