'The Exit' - Watch The New Film By Daisy Aitkens & Georgia Tennant
The team behind the short film 96 Ways To Say I Love You have today released their latest comic exploration of modern love, The Exit. Writer / director Daisy Aitkens and producer Georgia Tennant have created a tongue-in-cheek look at Brexit, played out in seven minutes as the break up of a love affair.
A bearded, top-knotted Christian Brassington stars as "...the hapless bloke who doesn't realise what he's got until it's gone" who, to the dismay of his Scottish neighbour (Sean Biggerstaff), is about to sever ties with his European girlfriend Aisla (Vera Filatova). Daisy says, "This short film I made is how England appeared to me. Like some myopic, ruddy-cheeked simpleton who, harking back to the days of the empire and the moral dark ages, made the blunt choice to cut themself off from a continent oozing with culture, class and history. And decent food."
Look out too from a fleeting appearance by Georgia's mum, Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy star Sandra Dickinson! The short is soundtracked by the Proclaimers song Make My Heart Fly.
Daisy and Georgia's next project is the romcom Fish Without Bicycles, starring David Tennant, Faye Marsay, Lucy Punch and Richard Wilson, produced by Bad Penny Productions and due to shoot from November for release in 2017.
