A teenage girl with a vivid imagination knows what she wants and fearlessly goes after it in ANGEL, a loving tribute to the power of desire. Angel Deverell (Romola Garai, Emma, Atonement), the daughter of a grocer, fantasizes about living in the town mansion, Paradise House. She interests a London publisher (Sam Neill, The Tudors, Jurassic Park) in her romantic novel, and he manages to turn the over-the-top melodrama into a bestseller – allowing Angel to buy Paradise House and pursue the man of her dreams, a painter (Michael Fassbender, Inglourious Basterds) struggling for his own big break. The first English-language film from the prolific and unpredictable French director Francois Ozon (Swimming Pool, 8 Women, Under the Sand), the vibrant, sumptuous ANGEL also stars his frequent muse, Charlotte Rampling.
