Redgrave, Stamp, Arterton, and Eccleston to Star in SONG FOR MARION

Vanessa Redgrave, Terence Stamp, Gemma Arterton, and Christopher Eccleston are set to star in the British comedic drama Song for Marion.  The story has Stamp playing a grumpy retiree who reluctantly joins a local choir at the urging of his wife Marion (Regrave).  There he learns valuable life lessons through “musical self discovery”.  I know that synopses that are from press releases don’t always do the best job of conveying the tone of a film, and so I hope Song for Marion isn’t as saccharine as it sounds.  Paul Andrew Williams (London to Brighton) will direct from his own screenplay.
