STORY DESCRIPTION:

A postman’s working day is over before most of us are even up, leaving a lot of time to sit and ponder, to regret lost chances and things that have been left unsaid. In the middle of the day, two friends find themselves drifting into a discussion about the nature of love, prompted by the story of a chance encounter and a love letter that was never sent. A Man of Letters looks at the overlooked, the faceless, uniformed people who hesitate in the background; the people we see every day without noticing. It hovers by their side, allowing us a wry look inside their lives.
DIRECTOR BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE:

Tom began directing theatre aged only 16. Learning that he couldn’t act himself took several years and around 15 plays. In the meantime he was writing, devising and directing plays whilst still in school. At university Tom concentrated on writing, photography, reading Spanish and English literature and watching a lot of films. He also spent a year living in South America teaching english. During his language and literature studies, he made only one film, and would prefer not to speak about it. Upon leaving university, he immediately began working as a freelance stills photographer and assistant director, before spending two years as a camera technician for a West London facilities company. Alongside this intense period of technical education, Tom moonlighted in the camera department, studying light and visual storytelling. Cameras became a passion and the never-ending quest to ‘make stuff look pretty’ had begun. This is Tom’s debut film on the festival circuit.
