Houdini on screen

The short film adapted from my novel, The Houdini Girl, is being screened in York this weekend as part of the 2014 Aesthetica Short Film Festival. The 11-minute film, made by Tomori Films and written and directed by Kfir Yefet, stars Jack Whitehall as Red and Laura Donnelly as Rosa in a steamy bedroom scene from near the beginning of the novel. It was shot in London last year with a view to attracting funding to make a full-length feature film.
