Set in the 1920s, Sarah (Janet McTeer) and her younger lover (JJ Feild) travel to an ivory trading post deep in the Malaysian jungle. The influence of the couple's high hopes and obvious love for each other on the small strained group of inhabitants unleashes greed, murder and madness: a tragedy where everyone is the victim of each other's broken dreams. This Dogme 95 inspired costume drama also stars Olympia Dukakis, Brenda Fricker, Tony Maudsly and Philip Jackson. The Intended is directed by Danish filmmaker, Kristian Levring and was co-written by leading lady, Janet McTeer. Shot with digital video, this film premiered at the 2002 Toronto Film Festival.
