Brighton Creative Connection Leads To City Gala Screening For New Family Comedy

The director, producer and star of new film 2:HRS, are all Brighton residents and have chosen the city to host a gala screening of the family comedy.

Producer Andromeda Godfrey has called Brighton home for ten years and director James Newton is also a local resident. 

The young up and coming star of the film, Ella-Rae Smith, has also recently moved to the city!

The upcoming screening will bring 2:HRS home to the people who have played such instrumental roles in creating it.

The premise of the film is a budding graffiti artist and an expert slacker, teen Tim Edge (Harry Jarvis) gets more than he bargained for when he convinces his two best friends, Vic and Alf, to skip a school trip. 


They stumble into a press conference being held by Lena Eidelhorn, the mad scientist (Siobhan Redmond, 2x nominated BAFTA actress) who is unveiling her latest invention, The Vitalitron. 

This machine is capable of predicting the time of death of any living creature. 

When Tim sneaks inside, he discovers he only has two hours left to live.

Chased across London by tabloid journalists, Tooley and Graves (Seann Walsh and Marek Larwood), Tim and his mates agree on a bucket list that will cram a lifetime into the next two hours.

Meanwhile Lena makes plans to ensure that The Vitalitron's prophecy comes true no matter what…

The gala screening of 2:HRS, will be held at the Brighton Odeon on Sunday 22nd July 2018 at 3.30pm. CLICK HERE for more info.
