Having You (Having You, 2013)
Director: Sam Hoare
To receive the notice that your partner is expecting is always exiting news, but to discover that you have had a child for seven years without knowing it can be a real thrill. Eurochannel presents Having You, a drama about a man whose fear of responsibility is put to the test when a seven year old son he didn’t know he had unexpectedly enters his life.
Directed by the British actor and first-time director Sam Hoare, Having You is a profound, moving tale about relationships, family, and love. With a gripping plot that keeps viewers with attention, the film also offers an original view on life's uncanny ability to test people when at their most vulnerable and about the deep reserves humans have inside to fight-up it is most needed.
Despite its tight budget, Having You turned to be one of the must-watch British dramas of 2013 thanks to its sensitive script and excellent cast, including superb and sincere performances Andrew Buchan, Anna Friel, and Romola Garai. What is more, the movie won the top prize in the Best Feature category at the 2013 L.E.S* Film Festival in New York upon its release.
Eurochannel invites viewers to let their feelings go with a drama about a man on the verge of settling down, who's put to the test when he meets the son he never knew he had.
Jack (Andrew Buchan) has finally managed to propose to his infertile girlfriend Camile (Romola Garai), when his life is turned upside down by the arrival of Ana (Anna Friel), an old one-night stand that introduces him to his seven year old son (Isaac Andrews).
