Hi-So gets U.K. release


Hi-So (ไฮโซ), Aditya Assarat's partly autobiographical existential look at a man caught between Eastern and Western cultures, is getting a theatrical release in the U.K.

Starring Ananda Everingham, Aditya's sophomore followup to Wonderful Town, follows a melancholy U.S.-schooled Thai actor on a film location where he's visited by his American girlfriend (Cerise Leang). He then drifts toward a young Thai woman (Sajee Apiwong) who works for the film company, and the cycle of doomed relationship repeats itself.

Set to premiere on March 1, it's the first release by a new company, Day for Night.

Aditya himself will attend the premiere at the Curzon Renoir, supported by Chang beer. He'll also be on hand for a March 2 screening at the Hackney Picturehouse.

  1. Glad to hear this news about a really good film. It played in New York back in 2011, and my review is at: http://asiancinefest.blogspot.com/2011/06/acf-1056-hi-so-reviewed.html

Please, no questions about where to download movies or subtitle files.

Please read the FAQ about Thai films on DVD before asking about where to find a Thai movie on DVD with English subtitles.
