Wednesday 17 May 2023

It’s a coming-of-age story with a twist and here is the First Look of Academy Award® winner Diane Keaton (Something’s Gotta Give, First Wives Club), Olivier Award winner Patricia Hodge OBE (Miranda, All Creatures Great and Small) and the legendary Lulu (To Sir, with Love, Absolutely Fabulous) in Sky Original film Arthur’s Whisky. Coming to Sky Cinema later this year.

Arthur’s Whisky is a charming, feel-good comedy about living in the moment. When Joan’s (Hodge) husband dies, she discovers he had invented an anti-aging elixir that literally takes the years off. Sharing it with her two friends Linda (Keaton) and Susan (Lulu), the three rejuvenated women waste no time in painting the town red, but they soon realise it’s a very different world to the one they remember.

Directed by Stephen Cookson (Stanley A Man of Variety, Brighton) and written by Alexis Zegerman (Ronnie Gecko, School Runs), the film also stars Screen Actors Guild Award winner David Harewood OBE (Homeland, Blood Diamond), Grammy nominated music superstar Boy George, Hayley Mills (The Parent Trap), Bill Paterson (House of the Dragon), Adil Ray (Blithe Spirit) and winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK Lawrence Chaney.  The film also features Genevieve Gaunt, Esme Lonsdale and Hannah Howland as the younger selves of the women.

Arthur’s Whisky is produced by Stephen Cookson and Peter Keegan at CK Films and Pippa Cross at CrossDay Productions.  The film is executive produced by Gary Hamilton of Arclight Films, Andrew Kotliar and Matt Cohen from MEP Capital, George Bennet of Worldmakr, Alastair Burlingham of Sherborne Media, Jack Christian from Filmology, Julia Stuart and Laura Grange at Sky and Leighton Lloyd.
