A LIFE IN AUGUST is currently enjoying a very successful film festival run.
Synopsis: With her dancing career on hold and her baby due in three months, Lisa’s (Lisa Miller) focus is on saving her marriage; while husband Harry (Haston McLaren) seems more committed to his role of aviator than that of father. Lisa strives to make sense of Harry’s behaviour, but is unaware of the secret trauma that he is keeping from her. As their relationship begins to disintegrate, Harry has his own way of dealing with the crisis.
Haston McLaren comments on A LIFE IN AUGUST.
"A LIFE IN AUGUST is not a film suitable for everyone. Adrenaline addicts or audiences that enjoy being spoon-fed probably shouldn't watch. Highlighted by the following review quotes from various sources that definitely won’t be appearing on any film posters.
A multi-layered film, that demands the audience to scratch away at it’s surface
It demands the audience pay attention and refuses to make obvious any of its subtle intimations.
The finer details will be lost to all but the most dedicated lovers of both film, and the genre itself.
That having been said, it is designed with the intention of being aesthetically beautiful and could be enjoyed on a more superficial level."
