Aidan on the big screen..coming to u soon :)

Remember the movie Salawati that Aidan acted in sometime ago (in Dec 2006 to be exact)? It is going to be in the theatre soon! For a while, I thought that the movie will never see the light of day because there was no news about it for so long. But sometime earlier this year, the production company emailed those involved in the show telling them that the movie was an official selection at the Seattle International Film Festival in June and that it will be shown in Singapore soon. Saw the emailer from Golden Village today where it stated that the preview screening will be on Sept 26!

Here's a brief synopsis of the movie :

Grief strikes a 12-year-old Malay girl named Wati (Aisyah Masgot) and her parents as they mourn the unexpected death of her older brother. Wati is so traumatized she has difficulty talking about his death with anyone, including the police and not even with her mother Fatimah (Mastura Ahmad) and father Ishak (Zaidi Ibrahim). To make sense of the tragedy, Wati prefers to talk to two witnesses, an Indian motorcycle delivery man Raj (Ravi Kumar) and a Chinese salesman Chan (Chaar Chun Kong). Raj is a rude thief, and Chan is so obsessed with work that his wife (Kelly Lim) questions his apparent lack of interest in their only son.Director and writer Marc X. Grigoroff builds an interesting relationship among Wati, Raj and Chan that builds throughout the movie. His focus on these three characters of different racial groups succeeds as he portrays modern race relations in Singapore; it strengthens this satisfying drama. — James Tabafunda

Aidan isn't credited here..he plays Wei Wei, the son of Mr & Mrs Chan.Can't wait to see my li' boy onscreen..Well, I'm sure his screentime should definitely be longer than Edison Chen's role in Batman although I'm not comparing apples to apples here :P

Gonna see how many tiks I can get for the preview! So who's keen to watch it? (don't blame me if you start nodding off coz it is a serious movie okay!)
