Icon Film Distribution are thrilled to announce that moving family drama Bleeding Love will be released in UK cinemas from 29th March.

Following its World Premiere at SXSW, the debut feature from Emma Westenberg is set to celebrate its UK Premiere next month at Glasgow Film Festival on Saturday 2nd March. Tickets are available now at

In hopes of reconnecting with his estranged child, a father (Golden Globe®-Winner Ewan McGregor) embarks on an impromptu road trip with his now-adult daughter (Clara McGregor) after she has a near-fatal drug overdose. He is planning to take her to rehab – though she doesn’t know that. En route to their destination of Santa Fe, New Mexico, and encountering an eccentric array of characters along the way, the two are forced to confront the issues of their past, the trip proving less about the road that they’re on, and more about the troubled one from their past.

Bleeding Love plays things close to home with fan favourite, Ewan McGregor starring alongside his real-life daughter Clara, who co-wrote the script with Vera Bulder and Ruby Caster. She has said that though it is fiction, aspects of it draw on her sometimes tricky relationship with her dad in the past.

Speaking about Bleeding Love director, Emma Westenberg said: “It was incredible to work with real life father-daughter duo Clara and Ewan McGregor on a story so personal to everyone involved. Their acting talents and real-life bonds combined to make them burst off the screen. I am grateful for the support of all the producers and crew on the project.”

“I felt a deep emotional connection to this story because substance abuse touches so many families, including my own, so when Vera Bulder and Clara McGregor approached me to direct I connected to the story immediately.”
