Keira Knightley will lend her voice in the animated feature Charlotte, directed by Eric Warin and Tahir Rana.
Knightley features alongside the voices of Brenda Blethyn, Jim Broadbent, Sam Claflin, Mark Strong, Sophie Okonedo, Henry Czerny and Eddie Marsan.
According to Deadline, the animation will premiere at the Toronto Film Festival.
The new animation, written by Erik Rutherford and David Bezmozgis, is inspired by Charlotte Salomon’s autobiographical paintings, ‘Life? Or Theatre?‘.
The story follows Charlotte, a young German-Jewish woman who grows up during World War II. Through war, she emerges to create a timeless masterpiece.
“Charlotte Salomon invented the graphic memoir when she painted her life story in over a thousand works while living as refugee during wartime.” Said Julia Rosenberg for January Films. “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.”
Charlotte is produced by Rosenberg, Jérôme Dopffer, Eric Goossens and Anton Roebbens.
