That's Not Me and Tommy's Honour free tix

We still have a couple of Double Passes for Tommy’s Honour, an intimate and moving tale of the real-life founders of the modern game of golf.

And we can now offer our members Double Passes for the new comedy That's Not Me, just email me with your address so I can post the tix out to you.

The film recently won the Best Feature at the British Academy Scotland Awards, view the trailer via the link below.

SynopsisThat's Not Me

"Alice Foulcher plays Polly, whose dreams of making it as an actor are shattered when her identical twin sister Amy lands the lead role in huge TV show. Mistaken for her famous sister at every turn, Polly decides to use Amy’s celebrity for her own advantage… with hilarious and disastrous consequences for them both.

Anchored by Foulcher’s revelatory turn in dual roles, their endearing quarter-life-crisis comedy charts the highs and lows of catching the acting bug, explores the difficulties of sibling rivalry, and probes the hope and heartbreak that comes with following your passion.

Made in Melbourne but reaching for Hollywood, THAT’S NOT ME is a feel-good comedy about the difference between failure and disappointment. We can’t all be Oscar winners. Not everyone will make it. But is that such a bad thing?"

The film will be released September 7th. View the trailer via the link below.
