THE REWRITE

On digital platforms from 2 February, 2015

On Blu-ray and DVD from 9 February, 2015

The King of the Rom-Com is back to reclaim his crown as Hugh Grant stars in THE REWRITE, available on digital platforms from 2 February, 2015 and on Blu-ray and DVD from 9 February, 2015, courtesy of Lionsgate Home Entertainment.

Once upon a time, screenwriter Keith Michaels (Hugh GrantFour Weddings And A Funeral, Music & Lyrics) was on top of the world – a Golden Globe Award and a hit movie to his name, a beautiful wife and a seemingly inexhaustible supply of wit and charm. But that was fifteen years ago: now, he’s divorced, broke, approaching 50 and hasn’t written a hit film in years. Luckily, his agent has a job for him – a university in the quiet town of Binghamton is looking for someone to teach a course in screenwriting, and with an empty wallet as his motivation, Keith can’t say no. Hoping to give minimal attention to his duties and focus on writing a new script, his attitude slowly begins to change when he meets Holly (Marisa TomeiAnger Management, The Wrestler), a single mum working two jobs to earn her degree with her own lessons to teach about second chances.

With a heavyweight supporting cast that includes Allison Janney (TV’s The West Wing, The Way Way Back), JK Simmons (Spider-Man, Whiplash) and Bella Heathcote (Dark Shadows, Pride And Prejudice And Zombies), THE REWRITE is Grant’s first rom-com in five years and arguably one of his best ever. The film also successfully re-teams Grant with director Marc Lawrence (Music and Lyrics, Two Weeks Notice, Miss Congeniality) so, with Valentine’s Day around the corner, it’s also perfectly placed for anyone in need of a bit of rom or a bit of com in their lives.
