HDNet Movies Presents a Special Sneak Preview of the Film "Mister Foe"

Dark comedy that VARIETY calls "a viewing delight" to premiere on HDNet Movies on Wednesday, September 3 at 8:00 p.m. ET - Two Days Prior to its National Theatrical Release


DALLAS (August 19, 2008) - HDNet Movies presents a special Sneak Preview of the movie MISTER FOE, starring Jamie Bell (Billy Elliot, Jumper), Sophia Myles (Underworld) and Claire Forlani (Meet Joe Black). MISTER FOE premieres exclusively on HDNet Movies Wednesday, September 3 at 8:00 p.m. ET.

Philip French of The Observer (UK) calls MISTER FOE "...Erotic, well-acted and beautifully photographed," while Wendy Ide of The Times (London) says "The originality of this unexpectedly upbeat rites-of-passage film is a breath of fresh air."

In MISTER FOE Hallam Foe (Jamie Bell) is a troubled young man whose knack for voyeurism paradoxically reveals his darkest fears, and his most peculiar desires. Driven to expose the true cause of his mother's death, he instead finds himself searching the rooftops of the city of Edinburgh for love.

Directed and co-written by David Mackenzie, MISTER FOE is a darkly twisted, entertaining work of magical realism from one of the leading lights of new Scottish cinema.

MISTER FOE is the latest installment in the HDNet Movies "Sneak Preview" series. Only HDNet Movies presents these exclusive "Sneak Previews" of films to viewers before they premiere in theaters. All Sneak Preview films are free to HDNet Movies subscribers.

MISTER FOE premieres on HDNet Movies on Wednesday, September 3 at 8:00 p.m. ET with encore presentations at 9:45 p.m. and 11:45 p.m. ET.

Thanks for the heads-up.

Hallam Foe aka Mister Foe (USA) at IMDb has a user rating of 7.4 which is pretty good. The Times (of London) reviewer gives it 4 stars out of 5.

Sounds a little weird. But I watch Saving Grace on TNT, so it couldn't be too bad.:lol:
