PHILOMENA and THE SCOTTSBORO BOYS score a double hit!

New Media Law’s clients scored a double triumph this week when TWO projects were simultaneously listed in The Sunday Times as Top Picks in the Film and Theatre Sections of their Critical List.

Philomena” starring Judi Dench & Steve Coogan is produced by New Media Law film stalwart Peter Dally’s client Gaby Tana of Magnolia Mae Films. It has already won the Best Screenplay award at the Venice Film Festival and is tipped for Oscars. Peter’s producer client Josephine Buchan was involved in the production of  “The Scottsboro Boys”,  currently showing at The Young Vic. It ’s a musical based on the true story of a group of black teenagers wrongly accused of rape.  As per The Sunday Times review: “The appalling story of the wrongly imprisoned Boys is told as a disconcerting minstrel show, and it works brilliantly – grotesque, hilarious and shameful all at once”.

Well done to Peter and of course CONGRATULATIONS! to Gaby and all involved in the production of “Philomena” and to Josephine, Catherine Schreiber and The Young Vic for “The Scottsboro Boys”!
