Above is the trailer for a British comedy I wrote called Lighthouse Hill. The magical comedy stars Jason Flemyng, who played Benjamin Button’s father in the Oscar-winning film The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Other cast members include: Kirsty Mitchell, Maureen Lipman, Frank Finlay, John Sessions and Kulvinder Ghir.
Here’s what the story is about: Thirty-something Charlie seems to have it all: a brilliant job, a beautiful girlfriend and everything money can buy. But something is missing. When his best friend dies, he sets off on a quest to discover his real purpose in life. On the way he meets Grace, a beautiful eccentric who will change the way he looks at the world forever.
I wrote the script for this film after I moved to Los Angeles to pursue a screenwriting career. The original title was Sage of Waldo but when British director David Fairman optioned the script and Carnaby Films in London signed on to produce, the title was changed a couple times, settling on Lighthouse Hill. My husband and I travelled from the U.S. to London to work with the director and actors in rehearsal shortly before the film began principal photography. It was an amazing experience and after the film was completed we went back to London for the royal premiere.
You can buy it through Amazon and buy or rent through Blockbuster or Netflix. Thanks for renting or buying the DVD.
