Get ready for a fantastic movie experience! “The Lesson” is arriving on September 22nd, and The Flying Colour Company had the honour of working on this thrilling story. The anticipation has been further stoked by a great review from The Hollywood Reporter.
In her theatrical directorial debut, Alice Troughton has crafted a true gem with “The Lesson.” Starring the remarkable talent of Richard E. Grant as J.M. Sinclair, a celebrated novelist, alongside Julie Delpy portraying Helene, his art-curator wife, and Daryl McCormack taking on the role of Liam, an aspiring novelist who admires Sinclair. The story intrigues you, set in a beautiful estate with hidden depths and a mysterious vibe.
“Troughton, who has directed for British television, brings a tone of supreme self-assurance to the film, expertly guiding its twists and darkening turns. And she drops in a few witty touches, including a scene in which the 1956 noir movie Yield to the Night plays in the background of a conversation and the camera closes in on a woman with a gun. Clue or red herring or neither?
Under its elegant surface, The Lesson takes on heavy issues of art, inspiration, classism, sexism, betrayal and revenge in one beautiful, impressive little package.”
Add September 22nd to your calendar and prepare for “The Lesson.” It’s not just a film but also a journey into the core of storytelling, filled with beauty and depth.
