Ginny & Georgia star Antonia Gentry has landed her next lead movie role, with the actress signing up to The Upside of Falling Down.
As reported by Variety, Gentry will be the lead in the upcoming mystery-romance, which is being directed by Oran Zegman. Starring alongside Gentry will be Calam Lynch, who appeared in The Rings of Power and Bridgerton, with the script being penned by Rebekah Crane and Kelly Walker.
Adapted from Crane’s novel of the same name, the official synopsis for the film reads: “Clementine (Gentry) has lost her memory in an accident and runs away from the hospital with the help of a stranger, Kieran (Lynch) to discover who she is now, before she can reconnect with who she used to be.
“As she allows herself to free dive into new beginnings, new joys, new loves, and finds the courage to grow into a new version of herself, she begins to fall for this super-cute, charismatic, warm and enigmatic stranger.
“As Clem puts together the puzzle of her past to find the truth of who she really is, she pieces together returning memories of her past life. Clem and Kieran fall deeply in love, and Clem finds she isn’t the only one with secrets… and when the truth is told, lives are turned upside down…”
Zegman, who previously directed Honor Society, said of the project: “One of the many charms of Upside is that it’s a movie you can watch twice and have totally different experiences. On your first run, you’re watching Clem’s story, and the second viewing, chances are you’ll focus on Kieran, as his self-discovery is as important as Clem’s.
“While Ireland will provide a gorgeous backdrop to our summer romance and mystery, it’s our incredible leads who will take centre stage: Antonia Gentry and Calam Lynch,” she added. "The chemistry between Clem and Kieran is the heartbeat of our film. Upside is a compelling mystery with a jaw-dropping reveal, and a fun sexy summer flick.”
