As the new film studies blogger, I will be posting about all things movie-related, especially seeing as I’m currently enjoying my summer break at home in Tunbridge Wells. Today happens to be a very exciting day for British film; the 5th of July is the day the fantastic UK Director Ben Wheatley releases his third feature length film “A Field In England”. Its the first film to be released simultaneously in cinemas, on DVD and on TV – to say that I’m excited for it would be a massive understatement! The film is shot in black and white and is set in the 17th century amongst the backdrop of the English civil war, following a group of deserters who become lost and unwittingly eat magic mushrooms. Sadly I’m not in Leicester at the moment, but if i was I’d definitely go see it on the big screen at the fantastic Phoenix theatre. Whether its a black and white psychedelic British film or a French Art-house film, the Phoenix will most likely be showing it. You can book tickets here: http://phoenix.org.uk/ I’ll be watching it at home on channel Film 4 at 10:45pm tonight – please do comment on what you thought of the film in the section below.
