The script, penned by Maaik Krijgsman (The Good Terrorist), is based on Beumer’s debut novel of the same name, which was published by Lebowski in 2018. The book garnered many great reviews and won the prestigious Hebban Debut Award. According to the synopsis, when her mother unexpectedly dies, the life of Eva (Elise Schaap) turns out to be built on secrets and lies. The fear of losing her mind and her father becomes more and more of a threat, and Eva embarks on a quest back into her past to face her demons. Alongside Schaap, Pierre Bokma (as Eva’s father), Maarten Heijmans (young Eva’s father) and Stefan Rokebrand (Eva’s husband) play the other lead roles. Moreover, the cast is enriched by the presence of actors Ariane Schluter, Hannah Hoekstra, Axel Daeseleire, Lisa Smit, Marie-Louise Stheijns, Marcel Hensema, Thor Braun and Gurkan Kücüksentürk.
Filming on the project, which took place in the Netherlands, mostly in and around Amsterdam, began in early January and wrapped on 1 March. The film’s cinematography was entrusted to DoP Danny Elsen (Torpedo [+leggi anche:
