New release - Edge
Carol Morley's Edge is screening this week at the BFI and Genesis cinema, but is now out on DVD for those not lucky enough to live in London.
Washed-up pop star (Paul Hilton) arrives at the Cliff Edge Hotel looking for inspiration and meets a guilt-ridden woman (Maxine Peake), who is desperate to recover her past. An older woman (Marjorie Yates) checks into a room with dark intent, but encounters a chambermaid (Ania Wendzikowska) who refuses to leave her alone. A blind date set up on the Internet between two teenagers (Joe Dempsie, Nichola Burley) fails to turn out like either of them expected. Over the course of two days and one night the hotel guests, frozen into the snowy landscape, begin to thaw - and to find a purpose that connects them all.
Extras on the release include a chat between the films producers Cairo Cannon and Tyrone Walker-Hebborn, a behind the scenes featurette and the film's trailer.
