Cult Epics has announced the release of director Nouchka van Brakel’s The Debut ((1977) on Blu-ray. The release date is April 13, 2021.
The forbidden-love story The Debut (1977) was the first full-length feature from pioneering filmmaker Nouchka van Brakel. Following the theme of Stanley Kubrick’s Lolita (1962) and Michael Powell’s Age of Consent (1969) – only this time told from a female perspective – van Brakel’s The Debut (1977) tells the delicate story of the impossible love between a teenage girl and a middle-aged married man. Based on the controversial novel by Hester Albach, The Debut is a subversive comedy-drama and the first commercially successful Dutch theatrical film directed by a woman.
