Mum's Birthday (37 mins)
The Hollywood Reel Independent Film Festival
Thursday 16th December 2010 at 6:15pm
Regent Showcase Cinema
614 North La Brea Avenue
Tickets are $10 for all films shown that evening.
Featuring first time performing young people living in Edinburgh's residential care homes, this poignant, time slicing drama, centres on newly single parent Alex who must tackle heartbreak to save the relationship with son Stephen on his wife's birthday, or risk losing the one thing in life that's still good.
The Hollywood Reel Independent Film Festival say's:
Haunting cinematography and pitch-perfect naturalistic performances from the entire cast set the tone for this amazing film that completely masters that late 70's dramatic film style that is all but disappearing in today's movie houses. Anchored by the complex performance of Elek Kish as Alex, a single father who is trying his best to hold his life together and figure out how to do right by his son, Mum's Birthday is a triumph of a film.
Irvine Welsh (Trainspotting/Acid House)
A beautiful piece of writing, very sad and moving. I didn't see twist coming - it was a real uppercut.
We would be so pleased to see you there!
Kind regards from the Mum's Birthday team.
