The summer with all it's weekends away has always been a cinematic challenge for me. There are so many films, and what seems to be fewer evenings to go see them.
This year I have distracted myself by reading dispatches about the Edinburgh International Film Festival which just launched with some fanfare Alan Cumming and Sean Connery.
Sam Medes is there and granted a long interview to the Scotsman newspaper about "Away We Go."
It's fun to see some of the anticipated films have already been here, but also gives a heads up for other films out there. I am intrigued by the new film starring Ewen "Trainspotting" Bremnar and Ardal O'Hanlan called "Wide Open Spaces."
The weekends are looking full, but there will always be time for reading
Hey there! Glad to hear you're intrigued by the film :-) If you'd like to know more - check out the website where you can find links to us on Facebook and Twitter too.
