Blithe Spirit is a riotous reimagining of Noël Coward’s classic comedy, about love that just won’t die…
Best-selling crime novelist Charles is struggling with catastrophic writer’s block and a stressful deadline for his first screenplay. His picture-perfect second wife Ruth is doing her best to keep him focussed in the hope of fulfilling her dream of heading to Hollywood. Charles’ desperate search for inspiration leads him to invite Madame Arcati, a medium recently exposed as a fraud, to perform a séance in their home. They all get more than they bargained for when Arcati accidentally summons the spirit of his deceased first wife: the fiery and jealous Elvira who embarks on a mission to kill Charles so she can spend eternity with him which leads to an increasingly comical and deadly love triangle.
Directed by Edward Hall, the film stars Dan Stevens, Leslie Mann, Isla Fisher and Judi Dench.
Blithe Spirit will land in selected cinemas and on Sky Cinema on 15th January, 2021.
