Screening dates for Modern Life Is Rubbish at the 2017 Edinburgh International Film Festival, part of the Best In British Strand, have been shared online today. The web page for the film has been created, and links to screening details are here. EIFF has shared a festival preview video, but there doesnt seem to be any sign of Tom in it.
With this witty and thoroughly engaging rom-com, director Daniel Jerome Gill’s debut film charts the relationship between Liam (Josh Whitehouse) and Natalie (Freya Mavor). Initially drawn together by their shared love for music, ten years later they are struggling to see what they saw in each other. As they start to split their music library, the soundtrack of their relationship keeps on pulling them back together. A real warm-hearted charmer of a film nicely adapted by Philip Gawthorne from his award-winning play.
The film's premiere will be on 22nd June at 20.40 hours, with a further screening on 25th June at 18.10 hours. The festival brochure can be downloaded from here. Tickets go on sale to the public on Friday 2nd June.
