We love it when our friends create something special. Usually it’s a great blog or gorgeous pictures. In this case, it’s one of the best indie films we’ve seen lately. We caught The Beat Beneath My Feet at the Raindance Film Festival in London, where it played to packed audiences.
What we liked best was that this story about a teen boy coming of age was both funny and dramatic, where fully realised teen and adult characters. For the younger viewers, it has the handsome Nicholas Galitzine, a London actor in his first film role. For older ones, it features the one and only Luke Perry, from Beverly Hills 90210.
The Daily Mail even caught up with a location shoot and featured a lineup of images of Perry in character. BritMums blogger Honest Mum featured producer Fiona Gillies as part of her Wonderful Women series.
We had a G+ hangout with Scoop Films and young lead actor Nicholas Galitzine to talk about the film, in which they talked about creating the film from a working mother and father’s perspective, what is was like to work with Luke Perry and more. Watch for some terrific insight.
