Q&A with director John Jencks, Emily Berrington, Tom Hodgson (other cast TBC). Host: Francine Stock
Dir JOHN JENCKS
UK 2017. 89 min.
Roger Allam shines as disgraced poet Ted Wallace, who turns detective to investigate strange events at a country house. Could the rumours of miracles be true? John Jencks’ film of Stephen Fry’s provocative black comedy both tightens and heightens the plot, while Allam relishes every syllable of Blanche McIntyre and Tom Hodgson’s wonderfully wry, witty, whisky-soaked dialogue.
With Roger Allam, Matthew Modine, Emily Berrington, Fiona Shaw, Tim McInnerny, Geraldine Somerville.
