Doctor Bishop Just Wants A Friend
It's not often that teaser trailers are released for short films, but I understand why this one is worth teasing. Friend stars Fringe star John Noble as "a lonely, grief stricken man of wealth finds a new lease on life after an unusual ‘friend’ is mysteriously delivered to his door. A unique and unexpected relationship quickly forms, bringing hope and colour to the man’s bleak existence. But will tragedy strike again?” The film was produced and co-written by his daughter, Jess Noble, and filmed by Fringe director of photographer David Geddes, while the series was finishing in Vancouver. And it looks terrific.
Of course, John Noble is one of those actors that you could film eating a bowl of Wheaties, and it would be engaging.
