The 53rd BFI London Film Festival opens

Thomas Brodie-Sangster in Nowhere Boy

October 15, 2009

Thomas Brodie-Sangster stars as the young Paul McCartney in Nowhere Boy, which is scheduled to close this year's London Film Festival on the 29th October. The film, directed by Sam-Taylor Wood, focuses on the formative years of the Beatles as teenagers and also features Chris Coghill and Kerrie Hayes.

Kerrie Hayes also stars in Kicks written by Leigh Campbell and directed by Lindy Heymann. Kerrie won the Trailblazer Award when the film premiered at The Edinburgh Film Festival for her portrayal of lead role Nicole, a shy Liverpudlian teenager effectively abandoned by her parents.

In Enter The Void, which tells the story of a troubled teenager who spirals into drug addiction in Tokyo, Olly Alexander plays one of the leading roles: Victor.

Both Thomas Brodie-Sangster and Olly Alexander can be seen again in Jane Campion's Bright Star, the story of poet John Keats and his lover Fanny Brawne. Thomas plays the role of Fanny's younger brother Samuel while Olly appears as Tom Keats in the film.

Receiving its premiere screening on Sunday 18th October is Julian Fellowes' new film From Time To Time, featuring both Douglas Booth and Kwayedza Kureya.

Simon Farnaby stars as title lead Bunny in Bunny and The Bull directed by Paul King, a surreal comedy following the friendship between two eccentric individuals.

Ellie Kendrick appears as the central character's schoolfriend Tina in Lone Sherfig's An Education and Clemmie Dugdale appears in Cracks: a story of obsession set in an isolated school for girls in the 1930s written by Ben Court and Caroline Ip.
