4 days to go...
...until Hallam Foe hits UK cinemas on Friday 31st August.
Here is a more download friendly document for people to send out as an email.
The aim here is to reach as many people with databases as possible. We are really trying to encourage people to see the film this weekend as the opening weekend box office has a huge impact on the future of the film.
It transpires that this is not only important to exhibitors in the UK, but also people around the world as it's an indication of how the film will be received in other territories too. Basically, if we can get a good ground swell of support in the UK (the first territory to release the movie) then it will influence the kind of release the film gets elsewhere.
We hope you feel inclined to get behind the movie, if you know anyone with a database that you can enlist to send out the document above (or one you want to write yourself) then it would be much appreciated.

Colin, yesterday (Tuesday August 28th) I was at the film premier screening of Hallam Foe in London (Vue West End, Cranbourne Street).
To be honest, I was really impressed. Hallam Foe is a delightful movie.
Yesterday's audience clearly sympathised with Hallam's peculiarities, thanks to the many scenes of humour, sweetness and warmth. Jamie Bell gives a brilliant on-screen performance as a troubled teenager, showing his depth of acting talent. And there are the superb performances of Sophia Myles and Claire Forlani.
And let's not forget: the gorgeous widescreen visuals turning the Highlands and Edinburgh into a glittery presence; the way David Mackenzie makes full use of hip cathy pop music; the appealing animated titles etc.
I hope the public enjoys and loves Hallam Foe the way I did, sweeping them of their feet. I recommend it to everyone. Top of the class, a must!
All the best to everyone involved in the making of this most accessible and highly entertaining movie!

Just wanted to congratulate you guys an an amazing movie. I saw an advance screening of it last night - and i think it could be one of th emost enjoyable movies i've ever seen.
I have to admit that it's not the type of movie i would usually go to see - and were it not that i got free tickets, i probably would have missed it.
From start to finish it was just brilliant. I cant say why exactly - but its just a special film with a warmth about it.
I hope it does as well as it deserves. it really is a fantastic movie. Congrats to everyone involved - it was 5 years very well spent.
Paul, Dublin, Ireland
