SMALL MOVIES SUNDAY: NEW POSTERS FOR STEPHEN FRY'S 'HIPPOPOTAMUS' WITH RUSSELL TOVEY, MATTHEW MODINE, 'ALONE IN BERLIN' WITH BRENDAN GLEESON, EMMA THOMPSON. 'FAIR HAVEN' GAY MOVIE DRAMA TRAILER

'HIPPOPOTAMUS' POSTER 
FOR STEPHEN FRY MOVIE
Smaller movies today for you starting with the first poster and trailer for a movie based on a novel written by British thespian Stephen Fry HIPPOPOTAMUS which still doesn't have a release date!
With a stellar cast including Matthew Modine, Russell Tovey, Fiona Shaw, it follows a disgraced poet Ted Wallace who is summoned to his friend's country manor to investigate a series of unexplained miracles. Ageing, lecherous, one-time hell raising poet, reduced by diminishing poetic talent to working as a theatre critic he IS the Hippo.



NEW 'ALONE IN BERLIN' POSTER 
FOR BRENDAN GLEESON AND EMMA THOMPSON WW2 DRAMA
A new poster has also arrived for Vincent Peres directed WW2 drama ALONE IN BERLIN, out this March, in which Emma Thompson and Brendan Gleeson play a  working class couple from 1940 Berlin, who receive the news that their only son has lost his life in the battlefield and decide to resist the Nazi regime in their very own way. Soon the Gestapo is hunting "the threat".



'FAIR HAVEN' TRAILER 
 EVERYONE DESERVES A CHANCE AT FINDING HAPPINESS
You can also check out the trailer and poster for gay drama movie FAIR HAVEN out this March in which Michael Grant plays a young man who returns to his family farm, after a long stay in ex-gay conversion therapy (I swear I'm not kidding), and is torn between the expectations of his emotionally distant father, and the memories of a past, loving relationship he has tried to bury.

  1. I want to see ALL THREE of these!

    Anything written by Stephen Fry is hilarious. I love Roger Allam who plays the lead as the washed-up poet. I've only ever seen him as DI Thursday in the "Endeavour" series so it will be great to see him in this very different role!

    "Alone in Berlin" looks SO amazing. Anything about WW2 breaks my heart. The timing of this film, with its central theme of resistance to power, is very fortuitous right now. I bet it will do well for that reason alone.

    I love any gay love story, of course, and "Fair Haven" looks great! "Gay conversion therapy" is nothing but abuse, pure and simple.

    1. we do love Frysie, one of the reasons I still watch his new sitcom THE GREAT INDOORS even though it's really bad.
      Wish there was Idiot conversion therapy!

  4. The Hippopotamus looks quite intriguing and comedic. Alone in Berlin seems deep and sad. Is it bad that I wanted those two boys to catch and shake that blonde in Fair Haven trailer? A different meaning for shake it like a salt shaker. :p
