Ol Parker, writer of this year’s sensationally successful The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, returns to the big screen next month with his sophomore feature behind the camera, Now Is Good.
“Tessa is seventeen and passionate about life. Diagnosed with a terminal illness, she determines to use every moment, compiling a catalogue of what a normal teenager would experience, including losing her virginity and taking drugs. With the help of her friend Zoey, she sets the list in motion. While her family deals with fear and grief, each in their own way, Tessa explores a whole new world. Falling in love with Adam, her new neighbour, wasn’t on the list, but it proves to be the most exhilarating experience of them all.”
Fanning stars alongside a strong supporting cast, headed up by Jeremy Irvine, Olivia Williams, Paddy Considine, Kaya Scodelario, and Joe Cole, with Parker adapting the original novel by Jenny Downham.
Now Is Good will be released in the UK on 19th September. As yet, there’s no date set for the US, but it should be forthcoming, so we’ll hopefully have more news on that front soon.
