Well, finally we've reached the end of the British Film Festival. Tonight's closing Gala was for the young John Lennon biopic "Nowhere Boy". Rumours were rife that the organisers were looking at getting some big names to show up - the surviving Beatles, Sir Elton John.... Clint Eastwood was in town doing filming, George Clooney had already been to three premieres why not a fourth, and of course there was always John Hurt.
And, when the dust finally settled.... well, let's say none of the above showed, even Yellow Cap Guy was Missing In Action, and photo for the day ended up being of an Aston Martin DB5. But don't let that stop you (me) from heading out and seeing what transpired anyway!
So... that was the end of that Film Festival. I kind of regret not going to the weekend premiere attended by Eva Green and Ridley Scott last weekend. The reason?... well.. there really was no good reason other than laziness. But still, a lot of premieres over a short period of time was a good thing.
Accordingly, this one will nestle happily among the other contents of "The Archive of Movie Premieres". Until next time!
