This summer is all about Ellen Page and her many releases, including the drama-romance “My Days of Mercy”.
Page and Kate Mara star as lovers stuck on the wrong side of political lines. Page’s character, Lucy, is the daughter of a man on death row. Mara’s character Mercy is on the opposing side of her family’s political cause.
“My Days of Mercy” originally premiered on Sept. 9, 2017, and received positive reviews from a small sample of critics on Rotten Tomatoes. It is finally scheduled for a theatrical release on May 17 in the United Kingdom and July 5 in North America.
One positive review of the film comes from IndieWire, which says: “By burying its sweetly rendered lesbian romance in a dense drama about capital punishment, it does a disservice to both stories. The movie doesn’t buckle under the weight of its ambitions, and in straining to find the light it ends up engaging and compelling — even if it is overly complex.”
“My Days of Mercy” is far from the only project in the works for Page. She will also star in Netflix’s upcoming miniseries “Armistead Maupin’s Tales of the City” and season two of “The Umbrella Academy”. She will also lend her voice to the animated movies “Naya Legend of the Golden Dolphins” and “Robodog”.
