return of NTL "Follies" to movie theaters in September

The film of the National Theatre's production of Follies that was shown here a few years ago is coming back to UK and Ireland "from 2 September" and internationally (presumably including the US) "from 12 September."
I don't usually like filmed shows, but I loved this when it was shown here and look forward to seeing it again. I've seen three major productions of Follies (two Broadway revivals and Papermill), and I found the NT production much more compelling, even on film. They did a great job filming it, though I could tell from the set design that it must have been even more spectacular in person.
