Jamie Bell plays Hallam Foe, a troubled young man whose knack for voyeurism paradoxically reveals his darkest fears, and his most peculiar desires. A 17-year-old misfit, Hallam spends his days spying on people from a tree house on the grounds of his father's (Ciar‡n Hinds) house in the Scottish Highlands. He's almost over the sudden death of his mother when he begins to suspect that his beautiful step mother (Claire Forlani) may have had a played a hand in it. Confusing matters even more for Hallam, he is incredibly attracted to her.After an ugly confrontation, Hallam runs away to Edinburgh. Out of money and out of friends, he finds his tree-top skills well suited to the rooftops of the city, where he lives ferally, peering through windows and attempting to avoid the perils of the streets below. He soon spies and becomes obsessed with a gorgeous girl named Kate (Sophia Myles), who happens to bear an uncanny resemblance to his mother. Will love get Hallam to come down from off of the roof?Directed and co-Âwritten by David Mackenzie, MISTER FOE is Jamie Bell's first starring role in a UK film since Billy Elliot. Co-Âstarring Sophia Myles (Tristan + Isolde, Thunderbirds,) Claire Forlani (Meet Joe Black) and Ciar‡n Hinds (Munich), MISTER FOE is produced by Gillian Berrie, co-written by Ed Whitmore, based on the novel 'Hallam Foe' by Peter Jinks, and executive produced by Matthew Justice. MISTER FOE was filmed over an eight week period on location in Edinburgh and Peeblesshire and in studios in Glasgow in the spring of 2006.
