Millennium Films has introduced a new poster and made a name change to their film Eliza Graves. It is now titled Stonehearst Asylum. Directed by Brad Anderson, the film features Jim Sturgess, Kate Beckinsale, Brendan Gleeson, Ben Kinglsey and Michael Caine. Additionally, a new facebook page and a holding page for the official website for the newly titled film have been added, but are not yet active. No release date has been set, but it’s expected to be in theaters in Fall of this year.
A new doctor comes to apprentice at a mental institution and meets a beautiful patient that he falls in love with amidst a set of circumstances which may be more complicated and dangerous than they seem.
In honor of St. Swithin’s Day (July 15), we’ve found this video interview via Film4, of Jim Sturgess along with Anne Hathaway and director Lone Scherfig, talking about the 2011 film, One Day.
Directed by Lone Scherfig (An Education, Academy Award-nominated for Best Picture), the motion picture One Day is adapted for the screen by David Nicholls from his beloved bestselling novel One Day. After one day together – July 15th, 1988, their college graduation – Emma Morley (Academy Award winner Anne Hathaway) and Dexter Mayhew (Jim Sturgess, Across the Universe) begin a friendship that will last a lifetime. She is a working-class girl of principle and ambition who dreams of making the world a better place. He is a wealthy charmer who dreams that the world will be his playground.
For the next two decades, key moments of their relationship are experienced over several July 15ths in their lives. Together and apart, we see Dex and Em through their friendship and fights, hopes and missed opportunities, laughter and tears. Somewhere along their journey, these two people realize that what they are searching and hoping for has been there for them all along. As the true meaning of that one day back in 1988 is revealed, they come to terms with the nature of love and life itself.
