Ben Ockrent’s festival hit, Edmund the Magnificent, is now available to watch online. Featuring performances from David Bradley, Rebecca Front and Mark Bonnar, this star-studded short tells the tale of a lonely farmer’s attempt to rekindle his former, pig-rearing glory days.
With its rich, warm colour palette and lyrical narration (the dulcet tones of Sir Ian McKellen, no less) the film has a storybook quality which services it’s uncynical exploration of acceptance. As with the aforementioned farmer, Edmund is bound to warm your heart.
