Release Date: Unknown | Length: 130 min | Genre: Drama | MPAA Rating: Unknown | Note(s): Title changed from “Agaat” to “The Outside Room”. Sophie Okonedo was originally attached to this project when Jocelyn Moorehouse was directing and writing, but I don’t see either of their names in the current cast list for this film. Not sure what’s going on with this project. It has a runtime but no release date. I will give it another expiration and if no update I will move it to “Unreleased” or something.
