We held the press screening for The Highway Rat at Soho House yesterday. It was an exciting moment, not only seeing all that detail on a large cinema screen, but also sharing the film for the first time with a crowd that hasn't been involved in any way or form... little bit scary. To my relief the reception was great; the audience laughed at the moments I hoped for, and I got a lot of compliments afterwards. Fingers crossed to good press reviews come Christmas. Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler were also at the event and were very pleased with the film, the ultimate seal of approval. Of course, I can't share much yet, but here's at least another still to whet the appetite.
