Archie Rice is a small-time vaudevillian living in the shadow of his father, a celebrated music-hall legend. Refusing to face his own limitations, he tries desperately for his moment in the spotlight, nursing his humiliation in trysts with naïve young girls and pouring out his passion in his valedictory number, 'Why Should I Care?'



As screens go dark

Many cinemas around the world have had to close their doors during the global Covid-19 pandemic. Film festivals have been postponed and cancelled. We tip our hats to all those cinema managers and staff, and to all the festival teams playing their part in keeping audiences around the world safe and well. 

We’re here for cinemas as they reopen and for festivals as they reschedule. We want to help.
