Joe's Palace and Capturing Mary: Also Featuring a Real Summer Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Two major new screenplays by the award-winning Stephen Poliakoff

made for the BBC and HBO Films and due to be broadcast in November

2007. A stellar cast led by Michael Gambon and Dame Maggie Smith

feature in these exquisite, major new films that are linked by a grand

house and memories of the past.

In Joe's Palace, the first of two screenplays, Stephen

Poliakoff explores the relationship between a reclusive billionaire

(played by Michael Gambon), and the teenage boy he employs to take care

of a grand house. This is a lavishly shot contemporary film about

loneliness and loss. In Capturing Mary, the companion film for

BBC2 set in the same exquisite empty house, Poliakoff takes his

characters into a dark and terrifying exploration of the past and its

power to capture and destroy a person's life. Dame Maggie Smith plays

the lead role.

Included also is A Real Summer, a glorious companion drama to Capturing Mary

charting the development of an unexpected friendship between a young

aristocratic woman and Mary before she enters the dangerous world of Mr

Graham's house.
