From Deadline:

Pierce Brosnan, Helena Bonham Carter and Gabriel Byrne are set to co-star in Polly Steele’s upcoming drama Four Letters Of Love as the parents of fated lovers played by up-and-coming actors Fionn O’Shea and Ann Skelly.

Cornerstone, which is handling worldwide sales and distribution, will launch the film at the Berlinale’s European Film Market next month. The Reset Collective will handle the release in Australia and New Zealand.

The film is based on Niall Williams’s international bestselling novel and is described as a lyrical and deeply romantic Irish story. . .

O’Shea and Skelly play two youngsters who are meant to be together but may never connect, unless fate plays its part.

Brosnan is the young man’s father. He has quit his job, following divine instruction, to focus on painting, leaving his dependent wife and son to fend for themselves.

Byrne and Bonham Carter play the young woman’s parents. Byrne’s character is a poet and schoolmaster, while Bonham Carter is an intuitive mother, coping with the sudden paralysis of her son, the girl’s younger brother.
