Last night I was kindly invited by Steve and Hugh to a special blogger prescreening of David McKenzie’s new movie Hallam Foe. It stars Jamie Bell as a teenager who has a few ‘issues’ after his mother dies. A dark and and sometimes uncomfortable movie you never quite get a handle on Hallam as you dislike, pity and admire him sometimes all at the same time. This is in part to a very tight script but largely due to Bell’s tremendous acting skills, the other actors also deliver top notch performances. A complex and fascinating movie but sadly not on general release until the 31st of August.
