With the film festival coming to town next week The Telegraph asked: “What movie best describes the story of your life?”

Meg Lyons

“‘The Island’ because I live on one.”

David & Carol Wilson

“‘8 Below’ because we are from Alaska.”


“‘Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.’”

Doug Patrum

“‘13 going on 30’ because I’m maturing nicely into my childhood.”

John Clay

“‘A Scanner Darkly.’ I can relate to that film.”
