Perplexed Music is an original short screenplay by Mark McGann about the universal cycle of devoted love, loss and rebirth, based on the Petrarchan (Italian) sonnet of the same name by Elizabeth Barrett-Browning. The film will explore the temporary madness and isolation experienced by a middle-aged man (played by Mark’s brother actor Paul McGann) as he battles for reason and stability with worlds past and present, in need of closure and the strength to continue on his journey without his life companion. The film will be shot entirely on location in Somerset, Cornwall and the Cotswolds in July 2017.
The project will be crowdfunded on Kickstarter. To get involved click on the following link at the beginning of this paragraph.
