Robert Pattinson’s short film “The Summer House” to be screened at Canadian short film fest

By Kim Palacios

HollywoodNews.com: In a few weeks time, The Worldwide Short Film Festival will be screening “The Summer House”, a short film in which Robert Pattinson plays. The short film is an adaptation of a coming-of-age story in which a teenage girl (Jane) summering at an aunt’s chateau in rural France discovers the complexity of romantic relationships—both those of certain family members, as well as her own.

The film was shot in 2008, just prior to the release of “Twilight”, the final buffer between Rob and international mega-stardom. In “The Summer House”, Rob plays the role of 18-year-old Richard, the love interest of Jane. Having broken up with her to date another woman prior to her departure for the summer, once dumped by the other, he appears unexpectedly at Jane’s retreat to win her back. Through a series of benign advances (e.g., love letters) and other more forceful attempts, he pushes Jane to come farther into herself.

The film’s official web site describes Richard as a “good looking boy, with an ambivalent feminine side, skinny and androgynous in the fashion of that time. He is narcissistic and entirely self regarding, his is a solipsistic universe with only one golden person inhabiting it; himself.”

The festival will run from June 1st to June 6th in Toronto, Canada, and will feature a series of celebrity shorts. In addition to Robert Pattinson in “The Summer House” other notable celeb appearances include Vincent D’Onofrio (“The New Tenants”), Saturday Night Live’s Kristen Wiig (“One Night Only”), and the voice of Meryl Streep (“There Must Be More to Life”).
