iW NEWS | "Hallam Foe" Opening Edinburgh Fest

Set for August 15 – 26, 2007 in Scotland, the Edinburgh International Film Festival will open with David Mackenzie‘s “Hallam Foe.” The film, starring Jamie Bell, is described as the story of “a sweet and old fashioned boy who learns about life at his father’s estate through his favorite pastime — voyeurism. He’s convinced that his stepmother is responsible for his mother’s suicide. His voyeurism becomes dangerous, but eventually he is redeemed and his pain is assuaged by love.” Mackenzie and Ed Whitmore adapted the script from Peter Jinks‘ Scottish novel of the same name, which is primarily set in Edinburgh. “Hallam Foe” was produced by Gillian Berrie. “The Written Word” is the overall theme of this year’s festival. Buena Vista International is releasing the film in the UK, while Magnolia Pictures is handling the movie in the United States. [Eugene Hernandez]
