Dan Carrier’s movies news: People, Places and Things; Beetlejuice

26 October, 2018 — By Dan Carrier

Steve Bowyer

THIS weekend grab the chance to check out People, Places and Things, shot in Camden and starring the wonderful Steve Bowyer in the lead.

Steve, who turns in a brilliant performance, stars as a husband heading out with some hidden intentions – but unaware his wife knows more about him than he realises…

“I got a call from Sue Jackson, the writer/producer of People, Places and Things, back in the summer to ask if I would like to take the lead male role part,” he tells Review.

“I had worked with Sue on a music hall production that she had written some time back and have been a fan ever since. The short film looks at relationships and is a subtle exploration of the nuances of a relationship when too much is left unsaid.”

The film was screened at the Fiddler’s Elbow in Malden Road a fortnight ago and was met with rave responses from those who caught it – now you can check it out at the Misty Moon International Film Festival at the Cinema Museum, Lambeth, tomorrow (Saturday).

• SO it is 30 years since the utterly marvellous film Beetlejuice was released – and to mark the three decades of bonkers joy the Michael Keaton/Tim Burton film has given us (and let’s not forget the stellar performances by Winona Ryder, Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis, Catherine O’Hara and Jeffrey Jones) it has been given a digital spruce-up and is hitting the big screen in time for Halloween.

Not only is the tale superb, the concept bizarrely marvellous, it features Harry Belafonte’s tune Jump In Line – the glistening cherry on top of a most delicious cinematic cake.
