Middletown Release in UK Unknown!

6point7 reports that Verve Pictures (the distributors of Middletown in the UK) have pulled the November 24th release date, there. Apparently they wish to pitch the movie at a less busy time of the year.

New clip of Middletown and a video review! (2006)

Mrs Q posted the following in the Pemberworth forum:


Follow this link, it's a 8mn21 segment from The View, a show of Rté Television on Middletown: including a clip from the movie (yeepee!) and very good reviews of Ted Sheehyn and Brenda Power, in particular. I quote

"Gabriel turns into such a fruitcake"

"Gabriel has problems with sexual repression"

"The best Irish movie of all time"

"Not to be seen on a Monday morning"

"It's not for the emotionally fragile, it is quite depressing"
"Not to be seen when you're feeling at all down"



If possible, I'll get the clip up to the gallery. Thank you so much, Mrs Q for the quotes and this amazing find!
