"The Letter Red" to Open on Valentine's Day
"Imagine Tarantino Rewriting Macbeth for the Screen in 2018"
That was our introduction to filmmaker/actor Edward Gusts. We took those words with a grain of salt since if was Gusts' agent who spoke them. It was with only a tiny grain of salt because Mr. Gusts is represented by Christopher Montgomery, CEO of Hollywood's prestigious Prodigy Talent Agency and a gentleman who has built a reputation for being blatantly honest.
We asked Edward Gusts if what his agent said about him was true.
"Absolutely not," Edward exclaimed. "I'm a lot better than that!" He glanced around the room for a moment, then looked back at us and grinned. Such was our introduction to Edward's wonderful humor and endearing wit.
We asked if his film, "The Letter Red," the one we had heard so much about, was ready to be seen.
"Well, it's out of post, but we're not screening it until the world premiere. That will be just prior to the actual release date, which is February 14."
We asked if we could possibly see it before the premiere.
"No, of course not," Edward replied, his slight frown shifting to a smile that gave him away. Later that evening we received a private link and password. We were elated that we were being allowing a one-time-only quickly-expiring opportunity to view "The Letter Red." For the next hour and fifty minutes, we watched an intriguing, extraordinary feature film.
"It's a bloody good film, isn't it?" Edward Gusts asked the next morning.
"It's very good," we responded, "and it's bloody." Edward smiled. "Any particular reason you're releasing the film on Valentine's Day?"
"Isn't it obvious?" Edward asked, his head tilted slightly to the side. "It's the perfect date film!"
