In some of the press releases and materials for Albatross, the film is described as a romantic comedy. Based on the trailer and the plot summary this might be a bit misleading.
However, here’s the plot synopsis, we’ll let you decide where or not this might be a rom-com:
Emelia Conan-Doyle is the heir to the legacy of Arthur Conan Doyle. She wishes to follow in his literary footstps and finds herself working at a seaside hotel while trying to write. There she meets another novelist Jonathan, his wife and their daughter Beth. The two 17-year-olds become friends and Emelia begins to inch her way into the family’s life. Eventually she casually seduces the sexually-frustrated Jonathan.
Albatross is due out on January 2, 2012 in a limited release.
