ComingSoon.net has your exclusive first look at a 10-minute behind-the-scenes featurette on Albatross, the Niall MacCormick drama starring Felicity Jones, Jessica Brown Findlay, Sebastian Koch and Julia Ormond. The film is now available to watch on SundanceNOW and Cable VOD ahead of its theatrical release on January 2nd.
Albatross is the story of Emelia Conan-Doyle (Jessica Brown Findlay, “Downton Abbey”), a cheeky force of nature and the 17-year-old heir to the legacy of Arthur Conan Doyle. Harboring an ambition to follow in the literary footsteps of her grandfather, Emelia writes while working at a stuffy seaside hotel populated by another blocked novelist Jonathan (Sebastian Koch), his put-upon wife (Julia Ormond) and their daughter Beth (Felicity Jones, Like Crazy).
Instigating a whirlwind of change, Emilia first befriends and emancipates the bookish daughter Beth (Jones), alarms her career frustrated mother (Ormond), before bewitching Jonathan himself.
