Book Review: The Night Before BAFTA by Assouline

Book Review: The Night Before BAFTA by Assouline – Even before the Oscars, the buzz of the British Academy Film Awards gives a unique energy to awards season, making one night in early February a highlight for everyone in the film business. Thus in 1999, Charles Finch’s now-famous pre-BAFTA party was born, and in the years since, Finch’s charismatic charm and creative skills have turned a small gathering on the eve of the BAFTA Awards into a star-studded bash. With a foreword by John Malkovich, The Night Before BAFTA is a behind-the-scenes invitation to this glamorous night, featuring iconic images of British actors and films, anecdotes from the party’s guests and notable figures, and the story of the famed British Academy of Film and Television Arts. Readers are welcomed into the exclusive club venue, Annabel’s, to peruse an impressive photo collection of the who’s who of British film, complemented by former Harper’s Bazaar UK editor Lucy Yeomans’s insights on Red Carpet fashion moments in film.
