Dollhouse Pictures to produce Devotion, a film based on the Hannah Kent novel

The crew behind Seriously Red are adapting the romantic drama novel Devotion into an Australian feature film.

Dollhouse Pictures, the production collective founded by Rose Byrne, Gracie Otto, Krew Boylan, Shannon Murphy and Jessica Carrera, will be adapting the Hanna Kent novel Devotion into a feature film.

Devotion is a queer love story set in late 1830s Prussia. It follows 15-year-old Hanne and her friend Thea as their Lutheran community flees religious persecution, leaving for a new settlement in South Australia. The journey puts their faith and friendship under threat but proves the bond of love is unbreakable.
