Principal photography is set to begin in early June on The Salt Path, based on Raynor Winn’s global bestselling memoir.

Adapted for film by by BAFTA award nominee Rebecca Lenkiewicz (She Said, Small Axe) and directed by Marianne Elliott (Company, War Horse) as her directorial feature film debut, The Salt Path is set to star two-time Emmy award-winning actress Gillian Anderson (The Crown, Sex Education) and multi-award winning actor Jason Isaacs (The Harry Potter films, The Death of Stalin). 

The Salt Path is the profound true story of husband and wife, Raynor and Moth Winn’s 630-mile trek along the beautiful but rugged Cornish, Devon and Dorset coastline. After being forcibly removed from their home, they make the desperate decision to keep walking in the hope that, in nature, they will find solace and a sense of acceptance. With depleted resources and only a tent and the bare essentials between them, every step along the path is a testament to their growing strength and determination. The Salt Path is a journey that is exhilarating, challenging, and liberating in equal measure. A portrayal of home and how it can be lost and rediscovered in the most unexpected ways.
