Dan Carrier’s movies news: People, Places and Things; Beetlejuice
26 October, 2018 — By Dan Carrier
THIS weekend grab the chance to check out People, Places and Things, shot in Camden and starring the wonderful Steve Bowyer in the lead.
Steve, who turns in a brilliant performance, stars as a husband heading out with some hidden intentions – but unaware his wife knows more about him than he realises…
“I got a call from Sue Jackson, the writer/producer of People, Places and Things, back in the summer to ask if I would like to take the lead male role part,” he tells Review.
“I had worked with Sue on a music hall production that she had written some time back and have been a fan ever since. The short film looks at relationships and is a subtle exploration of the nuances of a relationship when too much is left unsaid.”
The film was screened at the Fiddler’s Elbow in Malden Road a fortnight ago and was met with rave responses from those who caught it – now you can check it out at the Misty Moon International Film Festival at the Cinema Museum, Lambeth, tomorrow (Saturday).
• SO it is 30 years since the utterly marvellous film Beetlejuice was released – and to mark the three decades of bonkers joy the Michael Keaton/Tim Burton film has given us (and let’s not forget the stellar performances by Winona Ryder, Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis, Catherine O’Hara and Jeffrey Jones) it has been given a digital spruce-up and is hitting the big screen in time for Halloween.
Not only is the tale superb, the concept bizarrely marvellous, it features Harry Belafonte’s tune Jump In Line – the glistening cherry on top of a most delicious cinematic cake.
