    Will you be featuring this film at the festival later this year?
    I’ve read and enjoyed the book and look forward to seeing how it’s adapted and treated on screen.
    Great cast too – Hiddleston will make for an interesting Laing, as will Irons as Royale and Evans as Wilder.
    Can’t wait to write my review on it
