Preview: Lost at Christmas (2020)

Blue Finch Film Releasing and Magic Monkey Films are excited to announce that they are bringing Christmas cheer to the UK early with ‘Lost At Christmas‘ arriving in cinemas from 4th December – ahead of the film’s digital release on the 7th! 

Directed by BAFTA nominee Ryan Hendrick, the film is based on the acclaimed short film Perfect Strangers and is Scotland’s first traditional Christmas movie. Featuring an incredible cast, including, Sylvester McCoy (Dr Who / The Hobbit),  Natalie Clark (The Last Bus), Kenny BoyleSanjeev Kohli (Still Game) & Clare Grogan (Gregory’s Girl) to name a few. 

Lost At Christmas is set in the remote Scottish town of Fort William, on Christmas Eve, when life is turned upside down for Jen (Natalie Clark) and Rob (Kenny Boyle). Suddenly finding themselves heartbroken, single and stranded, they team up to try and reach home 100 miles away to be with their families. “Borrowing” Jen’s now ex-boyfriend’s classic car, the pair hit the road, but it’s not long before the weather turns for the worse forcing them to continue their journey on foot.

Bickering and bonding across the snowy Moors of Glencoe, they eventually arrive at a remote inn where they meet other guests dead set on avoiding the traditional Christmas joy. However, as Christmas Day draws closer, will happiness emerge and draw Jen and Rob together?

Lost at Christmas will bring you in from the cold, lighten your heart and provide the ultimate feel-good Christmas cinema experience.
Director Ryan Hendrick, who is excited to share his latest project with the world, said: “I am beyond thrilled our festive heart warmer is heading out into the world. It was a thrill to make and be surrounded by such a group of talented artists.

Lost at Christmas will be released in UK cinemas from 4th December and on Digital from 7th December

Preview: The Prom (2020)

I totally adore musicals and theatre and lets face it totally missing that live singing and dancing that is so loved. So with Netflix having The Prom coming in December this is very exciting for sure! Especially given Meryl Streep is in it, who doesn’t adore her? We have a truly outstanding teaser trailer:

Blue Finch Film Releasing are delighted to announce that Life With Music, starring Sir Patrick Stewart, Katie Holmes and Giancarlo Esposito, will be available on digital download from 27th July.

Henry Field (Patrick Stewart) is an acclaimed concert pianist and one of the great virtuosi of his era. Upon returning to the stage after a prolonged absence, he finds himself suddenly afflicted with a severe case of stage fright. His once effortless play has abruptly turned into a self-conscious struggle of every bar. Old wounds have crept up on the master as he now fights to ward off artistic disaster.

Enter Helen Morrison (Katie Holmes), a music critic with a kindred spirit and a troubled past of her own. Helen believes she might hold the key to Henry’s return to form, but she must first overcome his defences and win his trust. As Henry’s condition starts to improve, the blossoming relationship takes an unexpected turn which could precipitate his downfall. Unless he finally faces his demons and the darker truth lurking beneath the glory of the stage.

Everybody’s Talking About Jamie (2020) First Photo!

Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is the big screen adaptation of the hit musical that has enjoyed massive success in Sheffield and then in the West End (was due to tour the UK this year). I was lucky enough to see it early on in its West End run and caught the cinema playback as well.

It is a truly fantastic show with some amazing messages and great songs. In the film version the transformation of Richard E. Grant is something I have been really looking forward to seeing as Loco Chanelle! Newcomer Max Harwood is taking on the role of Jamie.
