Bafta nominated musician at screening of film classic
Ashford’s increasingly-popular film club will be showing a Nineties classic British dark comedy for their next screening.
The Creative Collective will screen the 1994 crime film Shallow Grave, the directional debut of Danny Boyle, on Friday, February 12.
Film lovers and critics are invited to their Park Mall headquarters from 6.30pm to watch the cinematic classic, starring Ewan McGregor, Christopher Eccleston and Kerry Fox.
Simon Boswell, a musician and artist who wrote the theme tune to the film, will be attending a Q&A session after the showing.
The BAFTA-nominated British film score composer, conductor, producer and musician has more than 90 credits to his name and is known for combining mainly electronic elements with orchestral.
Simon, whose fans include Hollywood big shot Quentin Tarantino, will be in Ashford to present excerpts from his video art project BLINK.
Shallow Grave was funded by Channel 4 and was the most commercially successful British film of 1995.
Considered a classic by many critics, the film earned Boyle the Best Newcomer Award from the 1996 London Film Critics Circle.
The screenplay, by John Hodge, follows McGregor, Eccleston and Fox as an accountant, journalist and doctor searching for a fourth room-mate for their Edinburgh flat.
They settle on aloof and mysterious Hugo, played by Keith Allen, who quickly dies of a drug overdose, leaving behind a large bundle of cash.
The film then plays out the group’s decision to find a way to keep Hugo’s death a secret and each keep the money.
Tickets are £5 including popcorn, feel free to bring your own drinks.
