We have already seen Richard E.Grant on the big screen this year with Horrid Henry: The Movie but now he is back with First Night.
He leads a cast that includes Sarah Brightman, Edyta Budnik and Oliver Dimsdale with Christopher Menaul moving away from TV projects to direct.
In the latest video for the movie the actor talks about his character as well as the plot.
Adam (Richard E. Grant) is a rich industrialist and frustrated opera singer aspiring to a more cultured world.
Spurred on by playful jibes that he’s just a City suit living a capitalist dream he decides to stage an opera in his lavish country retreat.
He feels sure the shallow taunting will end once his friends see him in full voice. In fact his singing might even help him win the hand of Celia (Sarah Brightman) the female conductor he’s been pursuing, especially since she is the first to be recruited for his showpiece.
First Night is out now.
