Further to our earlier news on the new Oxide Pang (without twin brother, Danny) film The Tesseract, a review has now surfaced over at www.aintitcool.com
The Tesseract began as the second novel from Alex Garland who also wrote the book The Beach and scripted Danny Boyle's 28 Days Later.. The book follows the lives of four separate characters over the course of a few hours in Bangkok.
Jonathon Rhys-Meyer (Velvet Goldmine and Bend it like Beckham) plays Sean, a British drug runner for the local mafia, who finds his actions have a lasting effect on a local Thai woman, a British psychologist (Saskia Reeves) in Bangkok filming a documentary and a local 13 year old bellboy.
Having really enjoyed this book when it was first released, it's heartening to see the review at www.aintitcool.com is extremely positive.
Looks like this could be a good one.
The DVD release in the UK has been tentatively scheduled for 30th October 2004.
