Sigh. Strum. Strum strum strum. Sing. Sigh. Isn’t life hard? In Alexandra McGuinness‘ feature debut, Lotus Eaters, it sure looks like it, though it also looks plenty pretty. The Dublin-born, London-based filmmaker’s film centers on a group of young, hip, and hot Londoners who are all struggling mighty hard with some big problems and obsessions (like drink, drugs, and heartache). Ain’t that always the way? The film’s cast includes a bunch of rising British stars, including Antonia Campbell-Hughes, Benn Northover, Liam Browne, Jay Choi, Daisy Lewis, and our strummer himself - Johnny Flynn, who is (of course) also the frontman for the folk-rock band Johnny Flynn & The Sussex Wit. Sigh. Strum. Rinse. Repeat. Soak in some champagne-drenched bourgeois ennui with the first trailer for Lotus Eaters, after the break. Lotus Eaters  will open the film in New York on April 5th, with expansion to Los Angeles and VOD on April 12th. [Thompson on Hollywood] »
