AROUND THE SUN

United Kingdom | 2019 | Oliver Krimpas

AROUND THE SUN film still

Well received at the 2019 Cleveland Int'l Film Festival, this Rohmeresque romantic drama with a sci-fi subtext revolves around a film location scout (Gethin Anthony of Game of Thrones) and the young real estate agent (Cara Theobold of Downton Abbey) who shows him around a neglected 17th-century chateau in Normandy. As they tour the place, she informs him that it was where 18th-century French man of letters Bernard Le Bovier de Fontenelle set a famous book that attempted to make sophisticated philosophical and scientific concepts understandable to the layman. This was accomplished through a series of conversations between a man and a woman as they perambulated around the property. Is history repeating itself? Written by Jonathan Kiefer. "Exquisite." –Austin Chronicle. 78 min.
