This BAFTA-nominated feature hosts a range of impressive UK talent from Stuart Earl’s tender music composition to London-born Dominic Buchanan’s producing prowess. All the performances are remarkable, but Brit Ben Whishaw is standout, delivering a subtle, moving and delicate performance as the bereft Richard.
