The details of the digital release of Last Night In Soho for an international audience are not available yet. The studios may reveal them once the movie finishes its theatre run. We will get back to you with more information about it once they are up in the air.
Last Night In Soho Plot
The official premise of Last Night In Soho talks about a girl going back in time to the 60s. A young passionate fashion designer named Eloise finds herself in the shoes of a singer named Sandy living in 1966 London. While she tries to figure out the mysterious phenomenon and life of Sandy, she also gets to know about the shady city from the time. Thus leading to consequences that may see the downfall of both past and present.
Looking at the brand new trailer of Last Night In Soho now. Well, it does give us quite a lot about the movie. But also leaves us in a slight confusion about what’s going down. Leaving a number of things to theorize about the plot. What we see here is two distinct personalities about our main characters Eloise and Sandy. Eloise is a budding aspiring fashion designer who finds herself lonely most of the time, trying to keep away from everyone. On the other hand, Sandy is a well-decorated singer garnering humongous attention for her work.
The next we see is that probably Eloise is traveling back to time and inside Sandy by sleeping away. How? The movie will reveal but that’s it. At first, she sees herself walking inside the theatres and facing the mirror, looking at the body she has inherited. Well, clearly, she wakes up back to herself and breaks down the dream if we say she has seen. But are those dreams after all because we can see them taking effect in her real life. The love bite we saw in the trailer for example.
But there are more complicated things to look at. We see Eloise obsessing with Sandy. We see her herself in the past chasing down Sandy as the character of Terence Stamp looks on. So she leaves the body sometime soon for sure. If that wasn’t enough, there is murder and ghosts around chasing her as well. Does this mean Eloise is not alone? We gotta wait for the movie after all.
