Watch Albatross On SundanceNow.com: http://www.sundancenow.com/film/albatross/778ALBATROSS is the story of Emelia Conan-Doyle (Jessica Brown Findlay, Downton Abbey), a cheeky force of nature and the 17 year old heir to the legacy of Arthur Conan Doyle. Harboring an ambition to follow in the literary footsteps of her grandfather, Emelia writes while working at a stuffy seaside hotel populated by another blocked novelist Jonathan (Sebastian Koch), his put-upon wife (Julia Ormond) and their daughter Beth (Felicity Jones, LIKE CRAZY).
Instigating a whirlwind of change, Emilia first befriends and emancipates the bookish daughter Beth (Jones), alarms her career frustrated mother (Ormond), before bewitching Jonathan himself.
The feature debut from BAFTA winning TV director Niall MacCormick, ALBATROSS, is available to watch on SundanceNOW and VOD before the film is available in theaters.

It stars up and comer Felicity Jones (LIKE CRAZY), Emelia Conan-Doyle (Jessica Brown Findlay, Downton Abbey), Sebastian Koch (UNKNOWN) and Julia Ormond (MY WEEK WITH MARILYN).
