Gideon's Daughter Film Poster


BBC drama from acclaimed writer-director Stephen Poliakoff, a thematic sequel to his earlier 'Friends and Crocodiles'. Bill Nighy plays PR consultant Gideon Warner, the man chosen to help package the country's Millennium celebrations. But as New Labour triumphantly enters power, and as Princess Diana dies to unprecedented public grief, Gideon is growing increasingly disillusioned with his life and his work, and is worried about the state of his relationship with his daughter Natasha (Emily Blunt). The only person who understands his pain is grieving mother Stella (Miranda Richardson), whose son has recently died. To the backdrop of a changing society at the turn of the century, Gideon and Stella's relationship gradually develops.
