SF IndieFest: AROUND THE SUN
First show: January 30
“Top 10 Festival Films of 2019 You Haven’t Seen Yet… Exquisite.” – Austin Chronicle.
Bernard (Gethin Anthony of Game of Thrones), a film location scout, tours a repossessed and crumbling French château. Over the course of an afternoon, he falls for both the place and its owner’s flirtatious representative, Maggie (Cara Theobold of Downton Abbey), who recounts the story of an influential popular-science book written and set there. But is their present-tense connection for real, or just a projection of the book’s 17th-century characters? A pleasure for lovers of talk, life, love, châteaux, and/or summer. That’s everyone, right?
Directed by Oliver Krimpas. UK. 79 min.
