St James Walk – About a Boy
16-18 St James Walk was transformed into Hugh Grant’s snazzy ‘island’ apartment for the 2002 film ‘About A Boy’. A temporary entrance was built on the side especially for the movie.
About a Boy was filmed in 2002 by Chris Weitz and Paul Weitz starring Nicholas Hoult (born 1989) as Marcus, Hugh Grant as Will, and Rachel Weisz as Rachel. An interesting aspect of the movie is the use of double voice-over narration, where, at crucial moments in the plot, the audience can follow Will’s as well as Marcus’s thoughts.
