After successful film festival screenings, including at the BFI Flare London LGBT+ Film Festival, Postcards From London is heading towards its UK release. To help get us interested, a new trailer has been released.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Essex boy Jim (British rising star Harris Dickinson) comes to Soho in search of fame, fortune and cultural simulation. Down on his luck, he meets ‘The Raconteurs’, a coterie of male escorts whose unique selling point is their encyclopaedic knowledge of the arts. What follows is Jim’s comic descent from unsuccessful escort, to artist’s muse and art authenticator – a journey complicated by a rare psychosomatic condition called ‘Stendhal Syndrome’. Rendering him painfully oversensitive to art, the condition threatens to bring about his downfall whilst opening him up to new opportunities – but is Jim willing to grab them?
The movie, from acclaimed writer-director Steve McLean, will arrive in UK cinemas on November 23rd. take a look at the trailer below. [Read more…]
