Here’s the announcement, with a different approach to describing the film. For me, this one speaks more directly to ways in which the film is connected to the book, although it’s a vastly different plot.
I’m very pleased that the film has been favorably reviewed by The Guardian and The Hollywood Reporter; I hope there will be more reviews after the Melbourne screening. And I hope that if you’re in Melbourne during the festival, you’ll see OtherLife on August 16 or August 18. You can also catch director Ben Lucas on the panel Dystopia on Film on August 17. Say hello from me!
