Tomorrow is the first of four screenings of ‘Hope Gap’ at the London Film Festival, starting with a Gala Screening at the Odeon Leicester Square. Tricia Tuttle, Director of the LFF, has embraced the film warmly. From her letter to me:
‘Our programmers were thoroughly charmed by this sharply scripted, gorgeously designed drama, that will have audiences leaving the cinema and rushing straight to the coast – the British seaside has rarely looked so lush. Annette Bening is extraordinary in a role that is perfectly calibrated to stay enthralling even as Grace works through the most unreasonable of emotions, while Bill Nighy is on equally top form as the man who has made up his mind. We know that audiences will be as charmed as we are with Hope Gap, and we are delighted to be able to present the film to them.’
The actual release is still many months away, but for me tomorrow is a big day.
Meanwhile I’m hard at work on what I hope will be my next film…
