Before she was Jadis (aka Anne) on AMC's The Walking Dead, Pollyanna McIntosh was The Woman in Lucky McKee's 2011 movie of the same name (based on the book that McKee wrote with the late, great Jack Ketchum, aka Dallas Mayr) and also played the character in 2009's Offsping (also based on a novel of the same name by Ketchum). For her feature-length directorial debut, McIntosh continues the story of The Woman with Darlin'.
Dark Sky Films released Darlin' in select theaters and on VOD platforms on July 12th, and now we've learned that it's coming to Blu-ray and DVD on September 3rd.
"Found at a Catholic hospital filthy and ferocious, feral teenager Darlin' (Lauryn Canny) is whisked off to a care home run by The Bishop (Bryan Batt, AMC's Mad Men) and his obedient nuns where she is to be tamed into a "good girl." However, Darlin' holds a secret darker than the "sins" she is threatened with, and she is not traveling alone. The Woman (Pollyanna McIntosh, The Walking Dead), equally fierce and feral, who raised her is ever present and is determined to come for her no matter who tries to step in her way.
DARLIN' sees standout star Pollyanna McIntosh both in front of and behind the camera, expertly commanding an all-consuming feast for the senses and sensibility in equal measure."
Written and directed by McIntosh, Darlin' stars Lauryn Canny, Bryan Batt, Nora-Jane Noone, Cooper Andrews, and McIntosh, who will reprise her role as The Woman from the 2011 movie of the same name. Darlin' is produced by Andrew van den Houten and executive produced by Jack Ketchum, Lucky McKee, Malik B. Ali, Badie Ali, Hamza Ali, Greg Newman, and Travis Stevens.
