Richard E.Grant is THE MAN WHO MARRIED HIMSELF Trailer

No comments: Links to this post

To many people Richard E Grant will always been remember as been Withnail from the classic 1987 cult movie Withnail & I but now we can remember him by The Man Who Married Himself.

This is a new British comedy short written &; directed by Garrick Hamm which stars Warren Clark, Emilia Fox (whom I had a crush on when I was younger not realising she is only 1 year older than me!!!)and Celia Imrie all well known names within the British acting world.

What has struck me about this little trailer is the great usage of the graphics and how beautifully shot the movie looks well they do have award winning cinematographer  Michael Seresin (Harry Potter, Angela’s Ashes, Angel Heart).It look typically British: bright, funny, layered with a few dark undertones not forgetting  whacky.
The movie will be shown at 2 of America's prestigous film festivals LA Shorts Fest  which has a knack of selecting the short film s that go onto win the Oscar for best movie short! You can also catch the movie at Rhodes Island International Film Festival which actually can help the movie qaulify for a possible Oscar nomination.

 Check out the movies trailer, behind the scenes featurette and the synopsis after the break...

Tomorrow Evening in Edinburgh the oldest film festival in the world kicks off, only been 1 hours drive away I’m kicking myself that I couldn’t get my press passess plus the movies I want to see are full, but my work abroad saw I didnt get things sorted. The opening movie will be an animated one and below is the UK Trailer for the movie called ‘The illusionist‘ created by Sylvain Chomet.
Chomet’s visual style is just delightful like the old watercolour/pen drawing traditional style, the storytelling is great as well very inspired by the Great Jacques Tati like his movies Mr Hurlot’s Holiday, just angry I wont be able to see it as well.

The story of the movie is the illisionists are a ‘dying breed’ of entertainer’s been replaced by the in your face rock stars and the main protaganist of the movie meets one of his young fans and his life changes, delightfully simply but very charming. 

Sony Classics will be releasing the movie via the cinemas stateside probally in the autumn as for UK or Ireland there’s no news yet.
