Posted: 3rd October 2018
Connie Nielsen, following her powerful performance in Wonder Woman, braves the Atlantic deep in seafaring Irish thriller, Sea Fever.
Nielsen leads the crew of a fishing trawler, struggling to survive in a race against time when a mysterious parasite infests their water supply. Joining her is Dougray Scott (Enigma, Woman in White) and previously announced, Hermione Corfield (Star Wars: The Last Jedi, xXx: Return of Xander Cage).
