Timewasters & Chewing Gum star Kadiff Kirwan joins Amazon’s feature drama which is currently in production

The story takes place in the late 1990s, when the arrival of elderly invalid Patrick (Rupert Everett) into Marion and Tom’s home, triggers the exploration of seismic events from 40 years previous: the passionate relationship between the younger Tom (Harry Styles) and Patrick (David Dawson) at a time when homosexuality was illegal. The Crown star Corrin plays the younger Marion, while Linus Roache and Gina McKee also star.

Based on the novel of the same name by Bethan Roberts, the movie is being produced by Greg Berlanti, Robbie Rogers and Sarah Schechter of Berlanti-Schechter Films, in association with Cora Palfrey and Phillip Herd at Independent Film Company and MGC. Michael Grandage is directing from an adapted screenplay by Ron Nyswaner.

Kirwan, who has a supporting role in the film, is best known for TV series including Timewasters, Chewing Gum, The Stranger and This Way Up. He is repped by Hatton McEwan Penford and Grandview.
