We were just sent over the official poster for John Crowley's charming new film, Is Anybody There?, starring Michael Caine and Bill Milner. We debuted the official trailer for the film a few weeks ago, and I suggest everyone watch that trailer if you haven't already. Caine stars as an aging magician who moves into an old person's home and befriends Edward, a lonely young boy who has grown up in these types of place. I haven't seen it yet, but it looks like a wonderful tale about life and friendship and I can't wait to check it out. As for this poster, compliments on designing such a good looking poster without using any floating heads.
For those interested, Is Anybody There? hits limited theaters in New York and Los Angeles on April 17th.
Set in 1980s seaside England, this is the story of Edward, an unusual ten year old boy growing up in an old people's home. Increasingly obsessed with ghosts, Edward's is a rather lonely existence until he meets Clarence, the latest recruit to the home, a retired magician with a liberating streak of anarchy.
Is Anybody There? is directed by British filmmaker John Crowley, who has only directed Intermission and Boy A previously. The screenplay was written by TV writer Peter Harness, of Frankie Howerd: Rather You Than Me previously. This first premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year where it was picked up by Optimum Releasing. Is Anybody There? arrives in very limited theaters starting on April 17th.
