LAST NIGHT IN SOHO
Director: Edgar Wright
Starring: Thomasin McKenzie, Anya Taylor-Joy, Matt Smith, Terence Stamp, Diana Rigg
Just in time for Halloween is a haunting tale of passion and dreams from moving to the big city to pursue something larger than life to the nightmares we can’t shake. Writer/director Edgar Wright’s latest film Last Night in Soho is a twisty ride. Thomasin McKenzie stars as Eloise, a budding fashion designer who sets out for London to attend the London College of Fashion. Her granny tries to warn her of the dangerous road that lies ahead, but Eloise dismisses her overprotective ways. She’s an independent, self-assured young woman who rents her own apartment after being mocked by the other schoolgirls. She’s always been drawn to the glitz and glamour of the 1960s London scene, and in her dreams, she’s transported back to a nightclub in that very part of Soho. It’s there she meets a mysterious singer named Sandie, played by Anya Taylor-Joy. Eloise’s infatuation with Sandie morphs from dreams to nightmares playing into a darker reality she’s unsure of anymore.
