The Wrong Way Round to Ewan McGregor

by Nathan Braund

Book Image Not Available
Overview
This is the true story of two men becoming forty, one a famous film star, the other an unpublished writer. When Nathan Braund discovered Ewan McGregor was filming up the road from where he was living in Phuket, Thailand, he interpreted it as more than a coincidence. He planned to put his movie script into the hands of the Scottish star, even though he knew it was unprofessional to pester an A-list actor, particularly when they were working on a serious film about the 2004 tsunami. Sceptics would argue he was having a mid-life crisis but he felt it was a calling, the break he needed after all these years. Join him with his wife and two small children on a journey of discovery, as he tries and fails on countless occasions to meet Ewan before finally succeeding in approaching him with script in hand.
