Desperate Romantics

Desperate Romantics

$28.98
With a glossy look and a driving contemporary soundtrack, Desperate Romantics is a character-driven romp through the alleyways, studios, brothels and chop-houses of 19th century London. In 1851, London is in the throes of the industrial revolution. But among the dirty red bricks and smoke stacks are four young, thrill-seeking artists - steadfast William Holman Hunt (Rafe Spall, Hot Fuzz, Bram Stoker’s Dracula), naive John Millais (Samuel Barnett, John Adams, The History Boys), mischievous Dante Gabriel Rossetti (Aidan Turner, Being Human) and budding journalist Fred Walters (Sam Crane, Midsomer Murders) - otherwise known as the Brotherhood. Their quest for artistic immortality takes them into some of the lewdest, darkest and funniest corners of the city. Joining them is sassy, sexy model Lizzie Siddal (Amy Manson, Being Human, Casualty). But is she risking it all with this dangerous bunch?

Editorial Reviews: “a colourful drama painted by a superlative cast” - The Times
“With a nod to its subjects’ defiant philosophy, the makers have revamped the dusty period-drama formula with a dazzling concoction of colour and nonstop whirling action. You’ve seldom seen anything like it” - Daily Mail
