Judi Dench steals the screen in trailer for new dark comedy
Oscar-winner Judi Dench transforms into a swindling medium in the trailer for her new dark comedy, Blithe Spirit.
The film, based on the Noël Coward play of the same name, tells the story of a best-selling crime novelist and the spirit of his first wife haunting him.
Charles, played by Dan Stevens, struggling with writer’s block and desperate for inspiration, calls on Madame Arcati (Dench) to perform a séance in their home. Things don’t go quite as they planned and Arcati accidentally summons the spirit of Charles’ first wife, played by Leslie Mann.
The original play, first published in the early 1940s has seen many adaptations both on stage, screen and radio.
