Julianne Nicholson in INICIALES SG

Julianne Nicholson and Argentina’s Diego Peretti are starring in the dark comedy “Iniciales SG” (Initials SG), Variety has learned exclusively. RELATED Toronto Film Review: ‘Who We Are Now’ Julianne Nicholson Joins Margot Robbie’s ‘I, Tonya’ Movie Rania Attieh and Daniel Garcia are directing from their own script. The film is produced by Ivan Eibuszyc of Frutacine S.R.L. and Shruti Ganguly of Honto88. Shooting is underway and will continue through February. The film takes place in Buenos Aires during the 2014 Soccer World Cup championship, which culminated with Germany defeating Argentina in the final. Peretti portrays a struggling actor, aging gracelessly who likens himself to Serge Gainsbourg. He has a chance encounter with an American film programmer, played by Nicholson and visiting Buenos Aires for a film festival, which leads them both on a path involving lust, longing and murder. The film will include Spanish renditions of some of Gainsbourg’s songs. “Iniciales SG” marks the fourth narrative feature for Attieh and Garcia. They wrote and directed the sci-fi thriller “H.,” which screened at the Venice Film Festival, Sundance Film Festival and Berlin Film Festival. Ganguly recently finished production on “Green Dolphin,” with Keanu Reeves exec producing. Eibuszyc’s latest production is “Kékszakállú” by director Gastón Solnicki. Nicholson recently appeared in “I, Tonya,” as skating coach Diane Rawlinson and will next be appearing in “Who We Are Now.” Peretti’s work includes “En terapia,” “La Reconstrucción,” and “Mamá se fue de viaje,” one of the biggest box office successes in Argentina in 2017. Nicholson is repped by UTA and is managed by Davien Littlefield of Davien Littlefield Management.

Nicholson Interview on ‘I, Tonya’

Excerpt of Refinery 29 interview with Nicholson
…Julianne Nicholson, who plays Harding’s coach Diane Rawlinson, said that the experience of making the film made her reassess her preconceived notions about Harding’s character.
“I did feel more compassionate towards her,” she said in an interview with Refinery29. “I felt that she was dealt a raw deal from the time she was born. She didn’t have the skills to be in any other world aside from the one that she grew up, which was kind of no holds barred, take what’s yours by any means necessary. And when she was dropped in the real world, it didn’t make sense to her.”

IndieWire Write up of  Where We Are Now:

Told with the full texture of real life, Julianne Nicholson’s second collaboration with “From Nowhere” filmmaker Matthew Newton is a close-up character study that explores notions of forgiveness and self-worth with surgical precision. It’s also a devastatingly authentic drama that’s as guarded and unforthcoming as its protagonist. The only thing we’re told about Nicholson’s character is that her name is Beth; everything else we’re left to sort out — or pry out — for ourselves. Eventually we learn that she’s been in jail for the last 10 years and is fighting for custody over her son, and the story of her legal case becomes a profoundly affecting portrait of sacrifice, redemption, and accepting the fact that the present is the only part of your life that you have the immediate power to change.
