Ewan McGregor's dark drama Young Adam will be the opening film at next month's Edinburgh Film Festival it was announced today. The film, by David MacKenzie, has already had certain critics in a lather over its sex scenes and will certainly make for interesting post-premiere chatter over fizz and crackers when it's shown on 13 August. Other high-profile films previewing in this year's festival include the Orlando Bloom/Heath Ledger film Ned Kelly and Clint Eastwood's Mystic River. The festival will close on 24 August with the film that won the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance earlier this year, American Splendor. A number of famous film folk are expected to attend over the course of the festival, among them an embarassment of directors including Jim Sheridan, Peter Greenaway, Terence Davies and Mike Hodges.
