In preparation for the premiere of ‘The Laureate’ next month at the Berlinale 2021, our gallery has now been updated with the first official poster, behind the scenes photos and HD screen captures from the very first teaser trailer for the film (which you can watch below if you haven’t seen it yet!). The Covid-19 pandemic will unfortunately greatly affect how much the cast will be able to promote the film, but we still hope we’ll get a fair share of new Dianna content the coming month. *Fingers crossed*
If you’re interested, you can also view a special ‘A Director’s View’ featurette over at youtube, in which Writer/Director William Nunez talks about The Laureate in New York City before it went into production.
Set against the glamorous backdrop of Britain’s roaring ’20s, The Laureate tells the story of young British War Poet Robert Graves, who is married with four children when he meets and becomes romantically involved with Laura Riding, a writer from America. Defying the conventions of polite society, Riding moves in with Graves and his wife living as a menage a tois. Then with the arrival of strappingly handsome Irish poet Geoffrey Phibbs, the arrangement becomes a menage a quatre. But soon tensions and rivalries become so fraught that Graves is a suspect for attempted murder.
Directed by William Nunez, and co-starring Tom Hughes, Laura Haddock, Julian Glover, Patricia Hodge, Christien Anholt & Fra Fee, The Laureate is set to have its premiere at the Berlinale 2021’s Industry Event from March 1–5!
