We are pleased to share with you the poster for Ella’s upcoming movie Access All Areas which is due to hit cinemas in the summer …
A long, hot summer is coming to an end. Whispers of a comeback performance by the legendary artist Kurtz are all over town, and aspiring musician Heath is desperate to make it to the Isle of Sounds festival to see it. But Heath is going nowhere. While his friends are moving on and moving away, he’s stuck caring for his unpredictable Mom Libby, and scrubbing pans to support them both. Mia has no time for anybody, certainly not her increasingly unhinged father Mack, and least of all Heath, whose affections have been long unrequited. Since the death of her mom, her home has become a war zone. So Mia does what all teenagers do in that situation: she parties every night and refuses to come home. Something has to give. When Heath gets caught up Mia’s bid for freedom, it catapults them and their friends on a wild, spiritual road-trip across to the greatest show on earth. On arriving at the party island, the Mia and Natalie flirt their way to a set of VIP wristbands and leave their unfortunate male companions in the dust. Deserted by his friends, and with fifty thousand terrifyingly loud revelers standing between him and the comeback that might never happen, Heath goes in search of his hero Kurtz. But he should be careful what he looks for…because you never know what you may find. Over one unforgettable weekend, nothing will go to plan for Heath and his friends. But if they can survive the crowds, the toilets, the aerial acrobats, the chaos, the Swedish hipsters, the unwelcome appearance of maniacal parents, and an apocalyptic backstage encounter with a rock legend, then their lives will never be the same.
We have added x04 new stills for Ella’s upcoming movie, Access All Areas which will be released next year.
Teen road trip movie Access All Areas has began its shoot at Bestival, the music festival held on the Isle of Wight that runs Sept 10-13. The production will then move to Bristol to film on location and will run for five weeks in total.
Bryn Higgins directs Oliver Veysey’s screenplay, which follows a group of frustrated teenagers who embark on a road trip to a music festival to escape their everyday lives. The cast includes Ella Purnell, newcomer Edward Bluemel, Georgie Henley (The Chronicles of Narnia) and Jordan Stephens (half of the English hip hop duo Rizzle Kicks).
Writer Veysey is producing for new outfit Camden Film Co. alongside Bill Curbishley, who was a producer on Quadrophenia in 1979 and more recently worked on The Railway Man.
