What to look forward to at Edinburgh International Film Festival 2019
Share This Article:
Edinburgh International Film Festival is back for the 73rd year running, bringing along a fantastic slate of over 120 films. We took a moment to round up just a few of the many, many great features to look forward to. Brightburn Brightburn is a dark twist on Superman’s origin story, starring Elizabeth Banks and David Denman as the alien child’s foster parents, and Jackson A. Dunn as the hero (or villain) of this story. This superhero horror has already received its fair share of cult buzz ever since James Gunn signed on as a producer. Boyz in the Wood Four teenage boys travel to the Highlands as part of their Duke of Edinburgh Award, only to lose their only map and find themselves hunted by tweed-wearing locals. Expect a film’s worth of class politics, hip-hop and rabbit shit-eating. Yesterday What if one day, you awoke to a world where the Beatles had never existed? Directed by the legendary Danny Boyle, this musical romantic comedy stars Himesh Patel, Lily James, Kate McKinnon and Ed Sheeran. Liberté: A Call to Spy Inspired by true events, this film recounts the story of women recruited as spies during the Second World War and sent to occupied France. It centres on spymistress Vera Atkins (Stana Katic) and her two recruits, an American with a wooden leg (Sarah Megan Thomas) and a Muslim pacifist (Radhika Apte).
