UK premieres and previews continue at this year’s Chichester International Film Festival.
English premiere: Perfect Sense, Saturday, August 27, 6.30pm, 92 mins plus Q&A; Sunday, August 28, 5pm. A love story played out against the onset of the apocalypse - falling in love as the world falls apart. Ewan McGregor is Michael, head chef at a swanky restaurant, and Eva Green, the aloof epidemiologist who catches his ey, and who is hearing reports across Scotland (and the world) of people whose emotions are running wild – just before they lose their sense of smell. Then another sense fails … what was initially bemusing, intriguing and quirky suddenly becomes painfully worrying…
Preview: Rebels Without A Clue (15), Thursday, September 1, 4.15pm, 80 mins plus Q&A. Mixing coming-of-age and teenage romance themes with guns, coke and corpses, Rebels Without A Clue is an exploration of classic Uk indie Danny Boyle-like thrillers.
Two teenage boys witness a drugs deal go horribly wrong on the moors of England. They steal the guy’s 1966 Cadillac, a case full of cocaine, his gun, and the money. Now all they have to do is buy a spade to bury the drug dealer’s body (stashed in the trunk), appease Damian’s mouthy girlfriend, lose their virginity, get off the moors and head south.
