Here’s something to throw a little love in your face this morning, a new trailer and poster for Elsa & Fred starring Christoper Plummer and Shirley Maclaine from director Michael Radford.

Radford is not a prolific director, which is a shame when you consider he directed John Hurt in the bowel-troubling adaptation of 1984 and Al Pacino as Shylock in the 2004 version of The Merchant of Venice you have some idea of his ability.

Il Postino was nothing short of a phenomenon and there’s something of the love is the air we breathe spirit right here. Plummer and Maclaine (apart from sounding like the best 70s cop drama we never had) look to be on fine form here, and the trailer looks like we’re in for a jolly old Barefoot in the O.A.Park time.

The film is out in cinemas from 1st May and is out on DVD/Download on the 4th of May.
