Kerry Shale’s drama tells the true story of his encounter with one of cinema’s most influential figures.
Stanley Kubrick is undoubtedly one of the greatest film makers of all time with a succession of masterpieces from A Clockwork Orange to 2001, Dr Strangelove to The Shining. He’s also known for an exhaustively detailed working process and utter lack of compromise.
For many years, the great director’s methods were shrouded in mystery. So when, in 1987, a young actor gets an invitation to enter Kubrick’s hidden world, he leaps at it. And, of course, gets more than he bargained for.
Kerry Shale plays himself in this darkly comic reflection on the nuts and bolts of true genius.
