THE ROAD WITHIN
As you know Robbie has been very busy for the past year filming here, there and everywhere. So I have decided to do a little post on everything you need to know about just some of his upcoming works:
First premiered on Wednesday, June 18th, at the 2014 Los Angeles Film Festival. Starring, of course Robert Sheehan, Dev Patel (Skins, Slumdog millionaire) Zoe Kravitz (Divergent), Robert Patrick and Kyra Sedgwick, the comedy-drama revolves around Robbie who plays Vincent -a young man with Tourette's syndrome- who encounters great change after his mother dies and he is sent off to an "unconventional clinic." After escaping from the clinic with two newfound friends, he embarks on a road trip with his Mother's ashes. This intriguing new flick is directed and written by Gren Wells and we just can't wait to see it. Just recently, director Gren Wells tweeted that the trailer for TRW would be coming soon and we are more than ready! Robbie was so committed to the film that he spent two weeks living with Jaxon -a friend of Gren Wells- who suffered from Tourette's, to really get to experience the ticks full on. The film has been getting rave reviews, especially for Rob's performance!
Anita B take place after world war two, where a young survivor of Auschwitz finds herself in a new life and in a passionate relationship with Rob's Character, Eli. The film premiered earlier this year, January 16th and we have a review of a fan event written up thanks to our Italian correspondent @SheehanGroupie ! I have been fortunate enough to have gotten the DVD from a friend from Italy and have since watched it. Such a beautiful film! As there were no subtitles and I don't know any Italian, I couldn't really understand what was happening but knew enough about the film to enjoy it. Robert and Eline Powell who acts alongside him as the main Character Anita, both gave stunning performances and we await news on a European release date for DVD.
We are super excited for this unusual flick, Jet Trash! Based on the book Go! by Simon Lewis -who we have previously interviewed for the website- Robbie plays Lee, a wild character hiding out on a beach in southern India with his friend Sol. Robbie actually did hide out in Southern India for around three months while filming this movie and Rob is also helping to produce it! Hopefully we will get more news soon about trailers and release dates.
Part two of this article -Rob's upcoming Flicks- will be continued soon :)
Thanks for reading, Sheester on!
