Filming has just completed on Nowhere Special, the new movie by Uberto Pasolini (Still Life, The Full Monty) starring James Norton, known for his highly acclaimed roles in Happy Valley and the upcoming Little Women.

Inspired by true events, in Nowhere Special, James Norton stars as thirty five-year-old window cleaner John, who has dedicated his life to bringing up his son, after the child’s mother left them soon after giving birth. When John is given only a few months to live, he attempts to find a new, perfect family for his three-year-old son, determined to shield him from the terrible reality of the situation.Chris Martin of Indie Movie Company, the Co Producer, explained that they chose the base on the Springfield Road because of its central location.

It was a great central hub for us to use as production offices and a base to travel throughout the city for our filming locations. The ability to have different scales of offices for our various departments, from art to costume and make up and the boardrooms and meeting rooms to facilitate our financier meetings made this the perfect spot for us,” he said.

Beta Cinema announced the acquisition of worldwide sales rights to Nowhere Special, which was a co-production between UK, Italy, Romania. The film is produced by Picomedia SRL, Nowhere Special Ltd., Avanpost/Digital Cube SRL, in association with Rai Cinema, with the support of Northern Ireland Screen and Eurimages.
