Your chance to meet Colin Firth at Brighton film premiere
Actor Colin Firth is to attend the Brighton premiere of his new film 'In Prison My Whole Life' to raise cash for Brighton and Hove Green Party.
The actor - who has notched up accolades and admiration for his performance as a football obsessive in 'Fever Pitch' - and the brooding Mr Darcy in the BBC production of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice - will be at the Duke of Yorks showing at Preston Circus on September 29th.
The film looks at the life of imprisoned political activist and former Black Panther member, Mumia Abu-Jamal, who's death sentence for killing a police officer was overturned in 2001 due to errors made during his 1982 hearing.
It boasts ppearances from Mos Def, Noam Chomsky, Alice Walker, Snoop Dogg, Steve Earle and Amy Goodman.
Colin Firth, one of the film's Executive Producers, will answer questions from the audience after the film - as will Green party leader Caroline Lucas.
There are a limited number of seats available, and are available here.
