Is it my imagination or is this a re-lease for The Rocket Post. I'm sure I saw it a few years ago.

You may have seen a preview or festival screening because it has struggled for five years to get a distributer.

Apparently the audience profile is getting older and are more likely to want to see old-fashioned dramas then they did back then so distributers are taking a chance with it.
