If you love a night at the movies followed by a great meal, this is the competition for you! We have 2 tickets to the UK premiere of Meg Ryan's elegant and moving World War II film Ithaca screening at the 70th Edinburgh International Film Festival on Thursday 23rd June. After the film, join us for an authentically Neapolitan dinner at Locanda. The perfect night out we'd say.
This impressively staged and beautifully shot (at times it feels like a moving Norman Rockwell painting) adaptation of William Saroyan’s novel The Human Comedy marks Meg Ryan’s directorial debut. Its coming-of-age story follows 14 year-old Homer (Alex Neustaedter) as he starts delivering telegrams in the early 1940s, with his breezy life changing as he has to start delivering bad news. Tom Hanks and Sam Shepard contribute telling cameos.
Established in 1947, the Edinburgh International Film Festival is world renowned for discovering and promoting the very best in international cinema - and for heralding and debating changes in global filmmaking. Intimate in its scale, ambitious in its scope, and fuelled by pure passion for cinema in all its manifestations, EIFF seeks to spotlight the most exciting and innovative new film talent, in a setting steeped in history.
