"It was many and many a year ago, in a kingdom by the sea. That a maiden there lived whom you may know, by the name of Annabel Lee". Based on the poem 'Annabel Lee' by Edgar Allan Poe and set in the aftermath of the war under the long, lingering shadow of the Irish-anglo conflict, 'Annabel Lee' is a tale of forbidden love between two young stowaways from opposite sides of the Irish Sea. As the couple run for their lives, they make it as far as a cottage in Devon awaiting rescue to take them to France. With the end of their journey in sight, they finally allow themselves to believe they have made it. However, E and Annabel begin to see signs all is not as it seems. Is this the work of malevolent spirits? Annabel's dangerous family ties? Or simply the misgivings of traumatised minds? With limited time on their hands, the two must make a decision before it is too late.

"I couldn't recommend more this cinematic exploration of one of the most beautiful poems ever written by Poe. From a new and exciting feminine perspective, Amy Coop manages to capture the wildest side of the landscape and confront it with the beauty of Angel Parker who portrays Annabel Lee as desirably fragile as she is courageous when fighting her fate."
Guillem Morales, BAFTA award-winning director and writer best known for Julia's Eyes (2010), Inside No. 9 (2015-17), and The Miniaturist (2017).
"Annabel Lee is visually stunning, a small film on an epic scale, and Angel Parker is absolutely captivating - it’s so exciting to see a young woman both write and star, and I can’t wait to see what she does next. Hats off to all involved in this ambitious, talented piece of work.."
Sadie Jones, award-winning novelist and screenwriter best known for The Outcast (2008) and her bold new novel The Snakes (2019).
