Amber Anderson, Greta Bellamacina and Tamsin Egerton can be seen bonding in wedding dresses alongside co-stars Jessica Plummer, Josette Simon and Bebe Cave in first look images from upcoming feature “Tell That to the Winter Sea.”
Anderson (“Peaky Blinders”) and Bellamacina (“This England”) star in the film as Scarlett and Jo, two teenage dance students whose intense friendship blossoms into a romantic one before running its course. But when the duo reconvene decades later on the eve of Jo’s wedding – to a man – it turns out deep feelings still remain.

In another scene from the film, which was directed by Jaclyn Bethany, the group, still clad in wedding dresses, enjoy a candle-lit dinner.
Meanwhile Jo and Scarlett’s relationship is also explored in flashback sequences, one of which sees a brunette Bellamacina holding hands with Anderson, both wearing their school uniforms.
Egerton (“Grimsby”), Plummer (“The Girl Before”), Simon (“Anatomy of A Scandal”) and Cave (“The Potters”) co-star as Jade, Lily, principal dancer Kat and Jen, all members of Jo’s bridal party.
“Looking at questions of love and relationships and freedom through a modernist feminist lens, the film was made with an entirely female cast and an almost entirely female crew,” reads the logline.

Kaleidoscope Film Distribution snapped up the film for the U.K. market and are repping international sales.
