Standing Still

Synopsis
STANDING STILL is a short, bittersweet comedy, starring Jonathan Slinger and Sinead Keenan. It follows the life of street performer Edgar Standing who makes his living as a living statue (as Hamlet) on the streets of Stratford upon Avon. He’s an actor who’s never realised his potential and never pushed himself to be the star he always thought he could be. His once partner left years ago and is now a big name in Hollywood.
