It’s lights, camera, action for Pembrokeshire this week! Film Third Star is set for release this Friday and the road-trip story shows Pembrokeshire in all its beautiful, coastal glory!

 

Scheduled for national release on May 20, Third Star was mostly shot on the National Trust’s Stackpole Estate within Pembrokeshire, South West Wales.

The film stars Benedict Cumberbatch [BBC’s Sherlock], JJ Feild [Northanger Abbey], Tom Burke [Poirot] and Adam Robertson [Harry and the Wrinklies] as four childhood friends re-forging the bond that they once enjoyed as they take a trip together along the coast.

The drama centres around James [Cumberbatch], who has terminal cancer and asks his three best friends to take him on one last riotous, ill-advised, camping trip to his favourite place in the world – Pembrokeshire’s Barafundle Bay. But his friends are unaware that he plans to commit suicide when he gets there.

The trip turns out to contain the usual round of mishaps, arguments and bizarre encounters before the inevitable revelations, confessions and soul-searching. But will James’ friends let him go through with his plan when they discover his intentions?

It’s an uplifting, often hilarious adventure, but at the heart of the story is an examination of everyday heroism.

 

 

Scripted by Welsh born writer/producer Vaughan Sivell, Third Star is directed by Hattie Dalton and backed by Film Agency Wales and Matador Pictures.

 

Freshwater West beach, as seen in Robin Hood and Harry Potter films

 

Pembrokeshire’s Freshwater West beach has already been seen on the big screen in last year’s Robin Hood epic starring Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett, and the penultimate Harry Potter film The Deathly Hallows.

So make Celtic Haven your base to explore in the film location footsteps of Third Star, Robin Hood and Harry Potter in Pembrokeshire!
