Seat in ShadowBy TLA Releasing
Albert, an eccentric, aging painter doubling as an unconventional, Jung-inspired psychotherapist, is asked to counsel his friends' lethargic grandson Ben, whose ongoing boyfriend problems are rapidly fueling an already deep depression. Their subsequent therapy sessions, though, seem to reveal as much about Albert as they do about the troubled young Ben. Soon, a deeply unusual bond is formed.
Reasons to Buy
- Seat in Shadow is a witty, perceptive study of social mores, sexual excess and the bizarre symbiotic relationship between doctor and patient, teacher and pupil; artist and muse.
- Lead actor David Sillars gives a bravura, tour de performances as the unconventional therapists. It's a committed, no holds barred portrait of an unusual, reclusive man.
- Director Henry Coombes offers a wildly unhinged view of gay life in Scotland - and with an equal mis of humor, poignancy snd eroticism - delivers one of those most promising film debuts we've seen in a long time.
