We’re sure you’ve seen it already but Paul Andrew Williams’s The Cottage is certainly worth another viewing when it premieres on Sky Movies, erm, Premiere at 10.15pm on Saturday (that’s August 1).
After all, he’s one of us (gabba gabba hey). He has family in Combeinteignhead, and went to school in Teignmouth -he even made an appearance at last year’s English Riviera Comedy Film Festival.
The Cottage garnered middling reviews when it was released, but these kinda films always work better at home, where you don’t have some fick-as-pig-poo Monkian-type inbred sticking his clawed feet on the back of your chair
As Williams himself admits, The Cottage is ‘a film to watch with your mates on a Friday night’.
We can’t help thinking that some people who really liked Williams’ gritty debut, London To Brighton (loudly proclaiming the filmmaker to be the new Loach or Leigh) just didn’t get The Cottage.
But having written last year’s horror flick The Children and with his forthcoming Cherry Tree Lane (which sees a couple being terrorized by a gang), it seems to us that London To Brighton is the anomoly.
Have you seen The Cottage? Did you prefer London To Brighton? Have you heard anything about Cherry Tree Lane? Views and opinions below, please!
