The movie tells the story of Wallace (Cumberbatch) as he tries to get over the scars of war and start a life away from the military when his old comrade James (Colin Salmon) calls in a debt. Unable to turn down the man who saved his life, Wallace agrees to help James, but soon finds it may be more than just a Little Favour…
The film was crowd funded raising £86,240 in 12 days – outstripping its original target of £25,000. As part of the rewards initiative, some of the funders will enjoy the chance to see the finished film at a private UK Premiere event in central London along with the cast and filmmakers.
Little Favour is written by debut director Patrick Victor Monroe and produced by SunnyMarch, a new production company set up by Benedict Cumberbatch, Adam Ackland, Adam Selves and Ben Dillon.
Benedict Cumberbatch said of the film: “I’m really proud to be a part of Little Favour. Not only because the results of the work we all put in are fantastic, but mostly because we all came together out of sheer goodwill and generosity for a cause we believe in – namely Patrick Monroe and his second outing as a director and writer. What was truly astonishing was the level of response and expertise and generosity we received from nearly every level of the film industry to make this idea a reality. The title soon became an ironic contrast to the huge favours that were being done in every department and the hours being put in. But none of that goodwill would’ve been possible to harness without the incredible response we had from the public. We set the record for the fastest and highest funded film in crowd funding history. However briefly we may wear that crown we’re incredibly proud of that fact. It speaks volumes about the faith placed in us and it is my only wish that that faith be justified by what we’ve done. So here it is. I hope you are as proud if it and the way it came about as we are. A million thanks for all your massive favours.”
