British actress Keira Knightley is known for her measured performances in period dramas like Pride & Prejudice as well as her involvement in mainstream favourites like the Pirates of the Caribbean. Her latest project will have its premiere on September 14 at the prestigious Toronto International Film Festival where it will be available in digital formats and accessible through a physical screening as well.

Directed by Eric Warin and Tahir Rana, Charlotte is a brand new animated film in which Keira Knightley voices a Jewish artist who grows up during the volatile sociopolitical climate of the Second World War. The film attempts to explore life through politics and art, delineating how the two intertwine to form a fascinating commentary on human existence.

The official synopsis reads: “Charlotte is an animated drama that tells the true story of Charlotte Salomon, a young German-Jewish painter who comes of age in Berlin on the eve of the Second World War. Fiercely imaginative and deeply gifted, she dreams of becoming an artist. Her first love applauds her talent, which emboldens her resolve.”

Adding: “But the world around her is changing quickly and dangerously, limiting her options and derailing her dream. When anti-Semitic policies inspire violent mobs, she leaves Berlin for the safety of the South of France. There she begins to paint again, and finds new love. But her work is interrupted, this time by a family tragedy that reveals an even darker secret. Believing that only an extraordinary act will save her, she embarks on the monumental adventure of painting her life story.”

Discussing the project, Jen Gorton of Sierra/Affinity, said: “All of us at Sierra/Affinity are excited to work with this star-studded cast and present this unique animated film to distributors across the globe. The story of Charlotte is one that deserves to be told and we are confident that the massive talent of the cast combined with the direction of the filmmaking team will reach and touch adults worldwide.”

Producer Julia Rosenberg also commented on the importance of the project, adding: “Charlotte Salomon invented the graphic memoir when she painted her life story in over a thousand works while living as a refugee during wartime. Her vitality and stunning talent have been overlooked for too long. Charlotte is a gesture of resistance, honouring her legacy while revealing it to the world.”

AMC Networks’ streaming bundle AMC+ and RLJE Films have picked up the Keira Knightley holiday comedic drama Silent Night which they’ll give a day-and-date release to in theaters and exclusively on AMC+ this December in the U.S. and Canada.

Silent Night follows a group of old friends who – in true British fashion and while the rest of the world faces impending doom – reunite to celebrate Christmas in the comfort of an idyllic country home. Burdened with the inconvenience of mankind’s imminent destruction, they adopt a stiff upper lip, crack open another bottle of Prosecco and continue with their festivities. But no amount of stoicism can replace the courage needed for their last night on Earth.

The pic reps the feature directorial debut of scribe Camille Griffin and also stars Matthew Goode, Roman Griffin Davis, Annabelle Wallis, Lily-Rose Depp, Ṣọpé Dìrísù, Kirby Howell-Baptiste, Lucy Punch, Rufus Jones and Trudie Styler among others. Matthew Vaughn (Kingsman franchise), Trudie Styler (Moon) and Celine Rattray (The Kids Are Alright) produce.

“With a focus on growing original and exclusive content for AMC+, we’re excited to partner with RLJE Films to bring Silent Night to a broad audience across both streaming and theatrical as we continue to meet viewers wherever they are and optimize exposure for great content,” said Courtney Thomasma, general manager for AMC+. “Camille Griffin and this all-star cast have created a film that’s emotional, funny and thought-provoking – exploring universal themes of friendship and love, class and privilege – and we are thrilled to add it to our robust lineup of high-quality, character-driven dramas and films this year.”

“Silent Night is completely original and a true achievement for Camille Griffin in her feature writing/directorial debut,” said Mark Ward, Chief Acquisitions Officer for RLJE Films. “The film could not be more timely in asking audiences, in a comedic yet honest way, what sacrifices they would be willing to make for the good of their family and humanity at large.”

“Silent Night treads its own unique path and finding the right distributor was akin to finding a school for our naughty child. I wanted to know our film would be in safe, loving hands and I know it will be with AMC+ and RJLE Films,” said Griffin. “I am hugely grateful to TIFF that my first feature will premiere at their festival.”

The pic is executive produced by Claudia Vaughn, Peter Morton, Stephen Marks, Carlos Peres, Adam Bohling, David Reid, Hélène Théodoly, Audra LaBrosse and Pietro Greppi with co-producer Greg McManus. The deal was negotiated by Ward on behalf of RLJE Films and AMC+ with Endeavor Content on behalf of the filmmakers. Endeavor Content is handling international sales at TIFF.

Other distributors for Silent Night include: Altitude (UK & Ireland), Metropolitan (France), Leone (Italy), Capelight Pictures (Germany), Sena (Iceland), Salim Ramia (Middle East), Bir Film (Turkey), Paradise (CIS), Nonstop Entertainment (Scandinavia), Empire (South Africa), Ascot Elite (Switzerland), Spentzos (Greece), Falcon (Indonesia), Presidio (Japan), Cai Chang (Taiwan), BF Distribution/Paris Filmes (LatAm). Husky Films (South Korea), Madman Entertainment (Australia/NZ).
