McGann Brothers Back Together For New Short Film.

McGann Brothers Back Together For New Short Film.


Actor Paul McGann and his brother, writer Mark McGann reunite to embark on an inspiring short film project based on Elizabeth Barrett-Browning’s poem ‘Perplexed Music’. Paul, who is best known for his roles in the films Withnail & I, Doctor Who and The Monocled Mutineer, is to be directed his brother Mark in the film about the cycle of devoted love, loss and rebirth. Mark started writing the screenplay for Perplexed Music after being inspired by Elizabeth Barrett-Browning’s poem of the same name.

Mark Says: “Reading the poem reminded me of the key role music plays in the elucidation of the higher universal truths that bind us all. It resonated with me strongly, as I sought to focus the idea for the film into a cinematographic concept.” The film will explore the temporary madness, isolation, catharsis and new beginning experienced by a middle-aged man, played by Paul, as he battles for reason, stability and the strength to continue on his journey without his life companion.”

“As the aim of the film is to elevate the viewer by finding the route through to their heart via a shared humanity and identification, I can think of no one better than Paul to play the central role. He’s wonderful at drawing an audience in out of curiosity, then allowing them the space to make an interpretation personal to them. I’m really excited he’s agreed to do it!’

Paul says: “I can’t wait. I love experiencing roles that throw you out of your comfort zone, that’s part of the buzz of performing. ” Perplexed Music will be filmed in Spring 2017 at various locations in Wiltshire, Cornwall and Somerset.

The film is currently in it’s fundraising stage and there is a campaign on Kickstarter, you can find out more here:
