Movie Shot on the SouthCoast Debuting at Toronto Film Festival
Do you remember seeing Charlie Hunnam roaming around the streets of Fall River and New Bedford?
During Summer 2018, Fall River and New Bedford faced a heatwave and it wasn't caused by just the weather. Charlie Hunnam had everyone feeling feverish when he and Jack O’Connell were running around town to shoot various scenes across the SouthCoast area.
Jungleland is set to make its world premiere showing at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 12 at 6 p.m. in the VISA Screening Room at the Princess of Wales Theatre. There will also be showings on the 13th and 14th in the Scotiabank Theatre.
Jungleland is the story of Stanley (Charlie Hunnam) managing his boxer brother Lion (Jack O’Connell). An unexpected loss in the ring leaves the brothers strapped for cash and in a load of debt, and an opportunity to win the cash back leads to a saga of misadventures that threaten to damage the brothers' relationship indefinitely. Jungleland is essentially a tale of two underclass brothers whose wish is not to be rich but only to get by without losing everything.
