“Sort of a British, female-driven Before Sunrise crossed with an episode of Cosmos?” is how Bay Area based screenwriter Jonathan Kiefer once tried describing Around the Sun. As good as anything else, at least, which is to say that this sumptuous indie is really not like much of anything else but itself. A pleasure for lovers of talk, life and love.

Description

Sort of a British, female-driven Before Sunrise crossed with an episode of Cosmos?” is how Bay Area based screenwriter Jonathan Kiefer once tried describing Around the Sun. As good as anything else, at least, which is to say that this sumptuous indie is really not like much of anything else but itself.

 

Bernard (Gethin Anthony of Game of Thrones), a film location scout, tours a repossessed and crumbling French château. Over the course of an afternoon, he falls for both the place and its owner’s flirtatious representative, Maggie (Cara Theobold of Downton Abbey), who recounts the story of an influential popular-science book written and set there. But is their present-tense connection for real, or just a projection of the book’s 17th-century characters? A pleasure for lovers of talk, life, love, châteaux, and/or summer. That’s everyone, right?
