UK producers and directors Alexander Holt and Lance Roehrig's feature film debut which was written by screenwriter and musician Mark Underwood after a story by writers and producers Steve Spence and Rebecca Long, is a UK production which was shot on location in London, England and produced by Rebecca Long. It tells the story about Will Fletcher, a guitarist and singer in his 30s who lives in a flat in London. One night after performing at a bar, Will is interrupted by a screaming woman whilst trying to commit an irrevocable act and runs to her rescue. This sudden event introduces him to a bartender named Eve Fisher.
Finely and acutely directed by English filmmakers Alexander Holt and Lance Roehrig, this quietly paced fictional tale which is narrated from multiple viewpoints, draws an incisive and involving portrayal of a meeting between a musician and a bartender who without any prior knowledge of each other finds a connection. While notable for it's naturalistic and atmospheric milieu depictions and fine cinematography by UK cinematographer Shane Daly, this character-driven and dialog-driven independent film depicts an in-depth study of character and contains a great score by American composer Michael J. McEvoy.
This modestly romantic, charmingly humorous and somewhat existentialistic love-story about a man and a woman who decides to accompany one another during the course of one summer night in London, is impelled and reinforced by it's cogent narrative structure, substantial character development, subtle continuity, authentic characters and the heartfelt and understated acting performances by English actor Tobias Menzies and Irish actress Genevieve O'Reilly. A tangible, endearing and poignant conversational drama which gained the award for Best Film at the 7th London Independent Film Festival in 2010.
