(a minor break from Comic-Con to focus on another peice of Rob's work)
I attended the premiere screenings of The Summer House, directed by RUBBISH BFF Orlando Gili's (aka photographer aka the guy who lent us a fridge during last fashion week!) sister Daisy Gili an eve ago, and I am so happy that I did. There are many reasons for this...here are some
Gili, (R Patz), Daisy Gili on set.
The film was actually shot about three years ago, however set in the late 1960's against the historic back drop of man landing on the moon, it doesn't matter and actually seems fitting with the current 40 year celebrations of the occasion that it has it firsts screenings in 2009. Additionally as Daisy said herself before the screening it doesn't hurt having cast back then one of the now biggest rising stars in Hollywood as your lead. None other than Robert Pattinson...back up off the floor ladies!
Now I will probably have many a teenage tantrum thrown my way for saying this but I much prefer this floppy haired tanned look over the spikey haired pale vampire Edward Cullen that R Patz has found fame for.
"The film is about a moment in a young girl's life. A turning point, a time for decision: to go back, or go forward?
Jane (Talulah Riley The Boat That Rocked) is in rural France visiting her aunt...she has left behind an unfaithful first love. Several letters have pursued her, letters decorated with hearts to tempt her. The author of these letters, Richard (Robert Pattinson Twilight & Little Ashes), turns up uninvited."
OK so a qwalified film cwitic I am not but I can say that the film left me wanting more, I cared enough about the characters to want to know what took place before we met them and what was going to happen next...what a short film should do, no?
