Take Your Partners
Based on the character in Take Your Partners, this feature-length project meets Ollie again, and again, and again, later in life. Bumping in to and informing each other, our multiple timelines unfold in parallel, culminating in an emotional climax that transcends three decades.
Set in Edinburgh in the not-too-distant future, but also present-day and recent-past, this project weaves together a humorous character-driven drama about an outspoken and controversial contemporary artist, as she attempts to establish a career amidst the chaos of life, lovers, asbos, homophobes and futuristic brain-wave technology. In the near-future, emotions can be directly interfaced, and Olivia McEnroe uses hers to make art.
In development with Arpeggio Pictures and Scottish Film Talent Network part of BFI’s NET.WORK.
