Lesley Manville to Star in Cold War Thriller ‘Winter of the Crow,’ HanWay Launching Sales

HanWay is launching sales on 'The Winter of the Crow,' based on the short story by Olga Tokarczuk and starring Lesley Manville.

Alongside Manville, soon to be seen in “Back to Black,” the sporting cast includes Tom Burke (“True Things,” “The Souvenir,” “Only God Forgives”), Zofia Wichłacz (“World on Fire,” and a European Shooting Star winner at the Berlin Film Festival in 2017) and Andrzej Konopka (“The Lure,” “Nina”). From award-winning director and storyboard artist Kasia Adamik (winner of the Silver Bear at the Berlin Film Festival in 2017 for “Spoor”), “Winter of the Crow” is a Cold War thriller set in the surreal and cinematic world of 1981 Warsaw. “As a Cold War spy thriller, ‘Winter of the Crow’ feels truly original in that the lead protagonist is an everyday woman who is challenged to step up and make a difference in a completely unique situation,” said Gabrielle Stewart, CEO HanWay Films.
