I’LL FIND YOU
I’LL FIND YOU I’LL FIND YOU

Is any love more tender than young love, or more agonizing when threatened by extinction from outside forces? Shakespeare’s classic paradigm finds contemporaneity in I’LL FIND YOU, a new film directed by Martha Coolidge. Instead of Romeo and Juliet in Renaissance Verona, we find ROBERT and RACHEL in mid-20th Century Europe - ensnared by the tumult of World War II. ROBERT, a catholic opera singer and RACHEL, a Jewish violin virtuoso, dream of one day performing together at legendary Carnegie Hall. When they’re torn apart by the German invasion of Poland, Robert vows to find Rachel, no matter what...

Inspired by stories of Polish musicians from the 1930-is/40-is I’LL FIND YOU was produced by Zbigniew Raczynski & Lukas Raczynski (father and son), by Bozenna Intrator and by Fred Roos - an Oscar Winner, a producer of such films as The Godfather, Apocalypse now and Lost in translation. His son Alexander as Executive Producer supported Roos. Film directed Martha Coolidge, admired for the portrayals of young people in such lauded films as Valley Girl, Rambling Rose and Real Genius. Coolidge has also directed adult fare (Introducing Dorothy Dandridge, Angie, Lost in Yonkers) and is the only woman to serve as president of the Directors Guild of America. The screenplay wrote American film director and screenwriter, Oscar Winner, David S. Ward and Polish-American poet, screenwriter and producer, Bozenna Intrator. Another Oscar Winner, Jan A.P. Kaczmarek composed the score to I’LL FIND YOU.

The role of Robert is taken by Leo Suter, a rising leading man and recent Oxford University graduate with extensive experience in student theatre. Robert is his first leading role in movies. He most recently appeared in the TV series, Victoria and Ransom.

Adelaide Clemens, who plays Rachel, began acting professionally as a teenager in her native Australia. Among her many credits are (fellow countryman) Baz Lerman’s The Great Gatsby and Generation Um, in which she appears opposite Keanu Reeves. She also stars in the Sundance Channel’s lauded miniseries, Rectify.

Leo and Adelaide are joined by the gifted Scandinavians, Stellan Skarsgård from Sweden and Connie Nielsen, a Dane now living in the U. S. Skarsgård, soon to appear in Terry Gilliam’s rose to international acclaim in the 1988 film, The Unbearable Lightness of Being. Among his best-known features are The Avengers, Thor: The Dark World, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo along with such lighter pictures as Cinderella, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Mama Mia! Recently he was awarded a Golden Globe for his role in mini-series Chernobyl. To call him versatile is an understatement but the role of Benno is his first as an opera singer.
Connie Nielsen plays Benno’s sister, Lena, head mistress of the music school. Nielsen is known for her roles as Queen Hippolyta in Wonder Woman and its follow-ups, Justice League and Wonder Woman 1984. A former model, she appeared in The Devil’s Advocate before co-starring opposite Russell Crowe in Ridley Scott’s Gladiator. She was also in Mission to Mars, The Ice Hunt and Nymphomaniac.

Robert as youngster is played by Sebastian Croft, a BAFTA nominated actor, born and raised in Great Britain, a shooting teenage star best known for his portrayal of the young Ned Stark in the Game of Thrones and most recently for playing the lead role in Horrible Histories. Young Rachel is performed by Ursula Parker, an American young actress who plays the violin surpassingly well. She has been recognized for her dramatic roles but has been most notably praised for her portrayal of Jane in the Emmy winning comedy series Louie.
