Stuart Rideout – I Wish for You

Stuart Rideout (United Kingdom)I Wish for You, Nature / Environment – I Wish for You is an emotionally powerful film about a grandfather’s poignant last letter to his granddaughter. Oscar-winner Jeremy Irons masterfully brings to life a brilliant script by acclaimed “War Horse” author Michael MorpurgoBAFTA-nominee Maxine Peake’s nuanced performance interprets his profound words and emotive memories as he extols the virtues of looking after the planet and his love and hope for the world around us that transcends time. A resonant and soaring soundtrack from Oscar-winning composer Rachel Portman helps the viewer connect on a deeply personal level. Deft direction from Rideout, with his signature combination of truthful performances blended with cinematic landscapes – taps into something elemental and brings to life a film with an environmental message that powerfully reminds us of what we are at stake of losing. Part of The Climate Coalition’s #ShowTheLove campaign – it is a climate film that is not heavy-handed but rather emotive and inspiring. A tour-de-force in the world of environmental movies. Ridley Scott Associates production company.
