Tribeca Interview: Garnet's Gold - "A Story Of Poetry, Lyricism And Romance"

Submitted by melissa on April 24, 2014 - 6:22pm


 

Twenty years ago Garnet Frost escaped London and headed into the desolate Scottish wilderness. Setting off without a map, disaster struck. Garnet found himself trapped between a mountain and the mysterious Loch Arkaig. Lost, cold and alone, he resigned himself to die. But Garnet didn’t die. By sheer chance, he was saved by a lone fisherman. For the past two decades, Garnet has been haunted by a memento from his doomed trip. He believes an unusual wooden staff he found while waiting to die is actually a marker for one of history’s most famous lost treasures – a spectacular fortune once owned by Bonnie Prince Charlie and lost since 1746. Now, two decades after the trip which almost killed him, Garnet is ready to return to the mysterious loch in his quest to find the gold. What Garnet finds up there, amidst the towering landscape, changes his life forever.

Tickets on sale for Saturday, April 26th!

Interview: Behind-the-Scenes With 'Dom Hemingway' Director Richard Shepard

Submitted by melissa on April 20, 2014 - 6:33pm


 

From the very first scene, it's all or nothing. If you're along for the ride, get ready for a roller coaster driven by the charming yet unleashed Jude Law as Dom Hemingway. Written and directed by Richard Shepard, Dom Hemingway is the story of an ex-con trying to put his life together after spending a 12 year stint in prison for not ratting out his boss. What separates this movie from many others is the stylized, bright visuals and of course, the jaw-dropping performance by Jude Law.

In theaters now - Read Michael's review here

I recently had the opportunity to speak with Shepard (who's American, by the way) about the movie and get insight into the many facets of Dom Hemingway.
