Aidan Turner and Ella Lily Hyland to Star in Tennis Drama About #MeToo

The Fifteen Love

Aidan Turner and Ella Lily Hyland have signed on to play the lead roles also in an upcoming film about sexual abuse in tennis. The pair will star together in “15” Love, a biographical feature about Israeli tennis champion Shahar Peer.

When she was sexually assaulted by professional players Dov Shilansky (Turner) and Vadim Nemov (Hyland). The woman is said to be one of the first sports victims of the #MeToo movement.

In her book, Peer wrote about how after she was assaulted, she had enough self-esteem to ask for advice from Dov’s coach and psychologist – but neither knew what to do. She alleges that he told her he “had no control over my imagination”.

The goal was to make a movie based on the French novel “La leçon de tennis” by Alexandre Dumas père. Due to budgetary issues. So, they thought about shooting it with a digital camera. But decided against it as they felt that this would limit the quality of the final product.

Story of The Fifteen-Love

“The Fifteen-Love” is a story about the most famous game of tennis in history, the Battle of Wimbledon, played between Björn Borg and John McEnroe. When their favorite team loses and they learn that Borg has won Wimbledon for six years straight, their game against each other becomes impromptu tennis facing off in the streets. They stake everything on a bet: The loser has to follow through with whatever request the winner might want.

“The Fifteen-Love” begins with a prologue showing the match in reverse. We see a young boy, Roger (Daniel Olsson), watching his favorite tennis player Björn Borg from a balcony also as he wins Wimbledon. Roger’s father (Svante Löth) then appears and reminds him of their bet that week, that if Borg wins, then he will follow through with whatever request his son might make and not decline it or be abusive in some way.
