Kate Mara and Ellen Page Cast In Lesbian Romantic Drama ‘Mercy’

Ellen Page and Kate Mara have been cast Israeli filmmaker Tali Shalom Ezer new lesbian romance drama Mercy, which is set to start shooting the begin of September in Cincinnati.


Page is set to portray Lucy, the daughter of a man on death row, who falls in love with the title character played by Mara.

The two characters are on opposing sides of the political cause, which tests Lucy’s values.

Page first revealed the then-untitled project last year during a news conference at the Zurich Film Festival, where Freeheld was screening, saying,

I’m focusing mostly on stories that are meaningful to me and stories for women and supporting more gay characters.”

Page starred with Julianne Moore and produced Freeheld and came out during the 2014 production of the drama, which focuses on police officer Laurel Hester’s fight to allow her pension benefits to be transferred to her domestic partner after being diagnosed with terminal cancer.

Page can be seen in Netflix’s Tallulah and A24’s Into the Forest, which she produced and starred in opposite Evan Rachel Wood.

Ellen Page & Evan Rachel Wood Discuss Their Latest Collaboration ‘Into the Forest’

Ellen Page and Evan Rachel Wood have talked to Monsters and Critics about their new collaboration, Into the Forest.

The apocalyptic movie, which Page produced as well as co-stars in with Wood, is based on Jean Hegland’s novel of the same name.

However, it isn’t your typical end-of-days movie.

Forget the zombie attacks or fire and brimstone, this drama from writer-director Patricia Rozema looks at the psychological side of complete loss.


It’s a story about two sisters who struggle to survive in a remote country house after a continent-wide power outage.

Page recently explained Into the Forest was a metaphor for grief. The way the sisters believe power will be restored, groceries re-stocked and things will go back to normal play into our own fears of change and impermanence — all expectations and attachments we ultimately have no control over.

They’re dealing with just an overall sense of grief, and loss of what they’ve known and what they were about to expect, which I think is just a huge part of what being alive means. Page also touches on the decision she made two years ago to come out as gay as “the best decision I’ve ever made.


I still get a little emotional talking about. I feel like a different person and I feel so lucky, so fortunate for that because that’s not the case for a lot of people who come out.”

Page, whose recent credits include Freeheld and Into The Forest, will co-star opposite rising Irish star Sam Keeley, who recently appeared in Burnt andIn The Heart Of The Sea.

Freyne will direct from his own screenplay set in the aftermath of a devastating virus that has gripped the continent for six years, transforming humans into zombie-like monsters.

A cure has been found but society is divided into those who were once infected, and committed terrible violent acts, and those who never contracted the virus.

On the new movie, Page said

The Third Wave brings an entire new perspective to the zombie genre, which I love. David Freyne truly shifts his lens on society’s role in the apocalyptic world. I’m so grateful for this opportunity to share his thoughtful approach to horror with audiences.”

The Third Wave, which marks Freyne’s feature debut, will begin filming in Ireland later this year.
