Hugh Bonneville is perfect as Dahl, and the relationship between him and his wife is full of warmth, love, and humour. There are plenty of hints towards origins of his many books and the pace is perfect for the subject matter. Never released theatrically due to covid.
Hugh Bonneville writes: “John Hay’s account of a tragic chapter in the marriage of Roald Dahl and his American film star wife, Patricia Neal, came out during the pandemic and so went straight onto the Sky platform, never getting its intended theatrical release. It’s a delicate, poignant film about grief. I’m thrilled it’s being shown in public for the first time in the UK.”
We are delighted to welcome Hugh Bonneville and director John Hay to introduce their film followed by a Q&A (Sun 20 Aug screening).
Our thanks to SKY for this screening.
