Lifetime's STOCKHOLM, PENNSYLVANIA TV Adaptation with Cynthia Nixon to Premiere in May

Lifetime is set to premiere the film Stockholm, Pennsylvania (#StockholmPennsylvania) on Saturday, May 2, at 8pm ET/PT. Starring Academy Award and Golden Globe nominee Saoirse Ronan (Atonement), Golden Globe nominee and Emmy Award winner Cynthia Nixon (Sex and the City), Golden Globe nominee Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter, The State Within) and David Warshofsky (The Mentalist), the original movie centers on a young woman, kidnapped as a child, who struggles to readjust to LIFE AFTER being returned home.

Abducted 17 years ago, Leia (Ronan) is miraculously found and returned home to her parents Marcy (Nixon) and Glen Dargon (Warshofsky). Having long forgotten her family, after being raised by her captor Benjamin McKay (Isaacs), Leia finds herself unable to connect to those who love her the most. Instead, she yearns for Ben, the only father figure she's ever known, and the safety of the basement she called home most of her life. Marcy resorts to DESPERATE MEASURES to forge a relationship with Leia, allowing her marriage to unravel as a byproduct. With Marcy's increasingly erratic actions echoing those of Ben, Leia is left questioning what it really means to be loved.

Produced by Fido Features in association with Olympus Pictures, Stockholm, Pennsylvania is written and directed by Nikole Beckwith (Three Generations, Big Beach). Marking Beckwith's directorial debut, the film is produced by Greg Ammon (59 Middle Lane), Dan Halsted (Virgin Suicides) and Leslie Urdang (Rabbit Hole).
