After gaining acclaim at TIFF and the BFI London Film Festival, Saban Films has acquired Calm with Horses. The harrowing drama focuses on drug dealing in rural Ireland, where Arm serves as bodyguard and enforcer for the Devers family. He's also a father to an autistic child, and finds himself at a crossroads when he's given a sinister assignment.
The film stars Barry Keoghan (Dunkirk) and Cosmo Jarvis (Netflix's Peaky Blinders), as well as numerous actors familiar to fans of British crime thrillers. Both writer Joe Murtagh and director Nick Rowland make their feature debuts.
While no release date has been set, Calm with Horses rounds out an exceptional year for Saban, which includes three out-there festival favorites: Guns Akimbo with Daniel Radcliffe, Come to Daddy with Elijah Wood, and Vivarium with Jesse Eisenberg.
