EIFF 2009 Preview: The Hurt Locker

15 Jun

With the 2009 Edinburgh International Film Festival just a few days away, there’s still time for a few short previews of some of the films I think are worth searching out: The Hurt Locker from director Kathryn Bigelow is one of the more populist ones.

The film is set in Iraq and revolves around the work of a bomb disposal team led by Sergeant William James (Jeremy Renner) as they deal not only with bombs but with the psychological problems that occur as a result. Guy Pearce and Ralph Feinnes co-star.

Described as a war movie for people who don’t like war movies, this could be a popular festival choice. The film premieres on Friday 19 June at 8.15pm, visit the EIFF site for details.
