Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle and Doctor Who actress Karen Gillan has been named as patron of the Edinburgh International Film Festival’s (Eiff) expanding youth strand.
Dubbed The Young & the Wild, the programme is a series of screenings and events for young audiences that takes place during the main festival, June 20 – July 1 in 2018.
Alongside her roles in current global box office topper Jumanji and Guardians Of The Galaxy 2, 2017 also saw Gillan make her debut as a writer-director with The Party’s Just Beginning (previously Tupperware Party), which is now in post-produciton.
Inverness-born Gillan was previously a juror at Eiff in 2015. Her responsibilities in her new role as patron are still being firmed up.
The Young & the Wild strand is expanding this year due to support from the Year of Young People 2018 event fund, an initiative managed by organisation EventScotland.
Famed British artist L.S. Lowry is getting the biopic treatment, with two of the U.K.’s best-known names set to star.
BAFTA nominee Timothy Spall (Early Man, The Party, Mr. Turner) and Oscar winner Vanessa Redgrave (Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool, Howards End) have been lined up to appear in Mrs. Lowry & Son, about the relationship of the Manchester painter — known for his images of urban, industrial scenes and matchstick men-like humans — and his overbearing mother, Elizabeth.
It would be easy to miss just how commitedly Sally Potter’s first film in five years operates as trenchant political satire, because that’s an incomplete definition for what she’s achieved. “The Party” is foremost a brilliant clockwork farce, brimming with wit and bile, the way Molière would do it, or Edward Albee. Featuring a veteran cast in top form and running just 71 minutes, this post-Brexit chamber piece hits like a fast jab to the face — one that bruises and draws blood. It’s probably possible (especially for an American viewer) to coast through this film on its comedic set-ups.
