Prince Charles Cancels Brick Lane Gala Screening

British Royal PRINCE CHARLES has cancelled next month's (Oct07) Royal Film Performance because of the controversy over the chosen movie BRICK LANE. Protesters have accused the film, based on Monica Ali's best-selling debut novel, of portraying residents of the London area as uneducated. The novel, which was nominated for the 2003 Booker Prize, follows the story of a Bangladeshi woman sent to London for an arranged marriage. But following protests by Brick Lane residents while filming of the adaptation commenced, the 29 October gala screening has been cancelled. Prince Charles spokesperson says, "There has been quite a lot of controversy about that film which everyone was aware of. "At the start, it had been one of a number of films proposed. None of the films and none of the dates worked." The film will now make its U.K. premiere at the London Film Festival on 26 October.
