A Little Rain Must Fall (45 minute feature film) (1997, UK)
Written by: Sally McLean & Jonathan Carr, Directed by: Dennis Morrison, Produced by: Sally McLean & Lisa Davies
The tale of five typical young women, living in London. An exploration of hard choices, hard luck and hard living. A dip into the youth culture that is so prevalent in any major city today. A foray into drugs, drink, relationships, growing up, responsibility, lessons to be learnt, changing values and morals and the realization that no matter how far (or fast) you run, the battles are the same wherever you are.
"A Little Rain Must Fall - sometimes life has a way of catching up with you."
Starring: Rebecca Nunn, Zara Balfour, Sally McLean, Joanna Goodchild, Aki Omori, David Hankinson, Alistair Barrie and James Buckley.
Filmed entirely on location in London, England, UK
This was our first production. We launched A Little Rain Must Fall on July 29th, 1997 at Ealing Studios, London, to an industry crowd of over 90 attendees, and some remarkably calm cast and crew.
