‘Art School Confidential’ will be shown at the Edinburgh International Film Festival next month. Go here to see the film listing. Showtimes:

This will be a good opportunity for UK fans to see the film – there’s still no date for a general UK theatrical release. There’s no confirmation yet of Sophia Myles appearing at the festival herself – but let’s hope!

‘Art School Confidential’ Press

Unfortunately, the critics aren’t warming to ‘Art School Confidential’. They seem to know nothing else than to compare it to ‘Ghost World’. Well, here’s an article about director Terry Zwigoff’s reaction to all this:

Zwigoff is oddly confidential

As for Sophia Myles’ performance as Audrey things aren’t exactly better:

“Harder to reconcile is the fact that Audrey remains as much a cipher to us as she does to Jerome.”
“Sophia Myles, meanwhile, spends most of the movie mooning over whatever young man is nearest, and posing demurely nude.”

It seems that her character has suffered from the editing and thus remains rather onedimensional.

“Plenty is likewise excised from his original cut of Art School, which is a half-hour longer than the 102-minute theatrical version. Missing, he says, are non-plot-driving moments that help explicate the character of Jerome’s muse, a haughty model played by Sophia Myles.”
