Ooh great poster! Thanks for sharing Mithriel.

I hope this movie does well too. It looks like a great role for Orlando! And hopefully it will get a worldwide release, including the US.

#OrlandoBloom #AnneReid @jayrmonty #AlexFerns in #Romans screening + Q/A tomorrow at #edfilmfest http://www.edfilmfest.org.uk/2017/romans*
https://twitter.com/shammasian/statu...93157843533824


First review:
Quote:
Romans
AFTER impressing with their powerhouse monologue-driven boxing drama debut The Pyramid Texts, the brothers Paul and Ludwig Shammasian are back with another cinematic gut punch. Orlando Bloom gives his best ever performance as Malky, a tough demolition worker who, when he’s not breaking down old churches or making his daily visit to his elderly mother (Anne Reid), punishes himself both mentally and physically as a means to deal with childhood sexual abuse at the hands of a priest. It’s not a film to mince its words, tackling its difficult themes of psychological scarring that abuse can cause and the struggling to give forgiveness entirely head on. The result is a challenging piece of brute force cinema that leaves a lasting impact.

and another long review: here
about his performance:
Quote:
"Orlando Bloom is stunning, a performance of looks and grunts and things unsaid and, gradually, of speaking. In the smallest moments, to listeners other than the audience, to audiences other than the listener, in the act of making a cup of tea or visiting the pub or in stories other people tell he brings a bruised and bloodied and tattooed and sullen intensity, and underneath that armour of scars and ink there are other scars, other marks, something special behind those eyes that are now cold."
@CGiiiFilm

Orlando Bloom delivers an astonishing performance: Romans @edfilmfest today

The men behind one of my favourite films of the @edfilmfest this year: #Romans! #OrlandoBloom's performance... OMG I'm speechless! ��

I too hope it will be featured at TIFF 2017-ok, maybe I'm hoping he'll be at a gala event and I'll be able to get an autotgraph. To hell with my Fibro/CFS/IBS I'm going to make the trip to the big city if it's featured. It'll be my 27th bday that month-which is kinda scary, as it's approaching within under three months. Does anyone on here live in or near Toronto, Ontario (in Canada)? Anyone know what the schedule for the Toronto Film Festival will be?T

Or will come to dvd or netflix!!!

Another great one...
Quote:
He is often distant and lost to the world and those around him and Orlando Bloom delivers this pain and vacancy with such nuanced conviction in a performance that feels so raw and real. The direction often means the camera will never shy away from its actors and it puts Malky front and centre at all times, and the result from Bloom is such an emotionally complex performance, yet one that feels so subdued and reserved. There's a provocative pensiveness to the acting on display here and the actor genuinely disappears into the skin of Malky and gives this character the intensity and honesty he deserves in what is, easily, one of the finest performances from an actor of this calibre this year - if not this decade. Bloom is a genuine triumph here.

Same here..."the actor genuinely disappears into the skin of Malky and gives this character the intensity and honesty he deserves " Well I think he does that exactly in all his performances,I've never seem Orlando on the screen,just the character...I'm glad that some critics are starting to see it too.

Good to hear.
I know this isn't related to Romans-far from it-but anyone know how to send a fan letter to him???
Has anyone sent one to him before? Did he reply?

and another 5 stars review from movie review world:
http://www.moviereviewworld.com/movi...romans-review/
Quote:
Malky is an intense and demanding role for any actor which commands a great deal of courage. Recognising this and leaving his movie star credentials at the door, Bloom delivers with utter grit and honesty in a soul barring performance that is undoubtedly the landmark of his acting career.

and i like this review very much:
http://cgiii.com/cgiiinews/7-blog/29...-festival-2017

Quote:
Do not expect the usual catholic-bashing, priest-abusing exposé that we have all become [too] familiar with in recent years...this is so much more...this gets under the skin, into the psyche...of the victim. As for the perpetrator...few words are spoken, none in defence...his self-loathing and the hate you feel for this man-of-the-cloth are spine-chillingly palpable.

Most assuredly, Orlando Bloom has cast off his elven mantle...he delivers a performance of such magnitude and dimension that - at times - your breath will simply be taken away. He makes you feel his...pain!

Everything is assured about this film...the direction, the writing...but, this Mr Bloom's film. A dark, intensely harrowing experience.
