Third Star

Went to see Third Star at The Empire, Leicester Square last night. It was amazing! Such a beautiful story. Cast were astounding. Cried loads. When the film finished everyone just sat there in silence, no one moved or said anything until the very end of the credits. Although I was very surprised that there were only 11 people in the cinema.
Congratulations to all involved in the making of this incredible film!!!


An epic comedy drama starring Tom Burke, Benedict Cumberbatch, JJ Feild and Adam Robertson. 

Four best friends, all in their late twenties, set off on an ill‐advised camping trip to West Wales. With no other skills for the outdoor life, except making tea, the journey will test their strength, their friendship, and their belief in what makes life worth living.

James (BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH) wants to make the most of this life – what’s left of it.
He invites his three closest friends to join him on a camping trip to his favourite place in the world. The undertaking, however, is fraught with practical difficulties, surreal encounters and emotionally ravaging revelations. For his best friend Miles (JJ FEILD), the trip means wrestling with the gloomy reality that the ones he loves tend to die. For Davy (Tom Burke) it’s about being there and holding the effort together – while for Bill (Adam Roberston) it’s about running away from the mistakes he’s made and the comfortable trap that is his life. Each step of the journey is one step further from the past and to a brave new world about courage, dignity and the beauty that lies in the friendship between these four young men.

Thank you for this - you have inspired me to post my own review!


Only eleven people in the cinema on a Saturday evening in central London? This gives me no hope that the film will show anywhere near me. However, I will eagerly await the DVD. Thanks for sharing your thoughts about it. :-)
