OFFICIAL TRAILER LAUNCHES FOR ‘THE CRITIC’ STARRING IAN MCKELLEN & GEMMA ARTERTON

True Brit Entertainment launches the official trailer for The Critic, which debuts in cinemas across the UK and Ireland on 13th September. 
 
Based on Anthony Quinn’s novel Curtain Call, The Critic is adapted by Academy Award nominee Patrick Marber (Closer, Notes on a Scandal) and directed by Anand Tucker (Hilary & Jackie, Shopgirl). The film is produced by Jolyon Symonds for Fearless Minds and Bill Kenwright’s BK Studios.

Jimmy Erskine (Ian McKellen) is the most feared and famous theatre critic in 1930s London, saving his most savage takedowns for Nina Land (Gemma Arterton), an already unsure leading lady. He takes pleasure in ritually tearing her down, a practice that has further eroded her fragile sense of confidence. As a gay man forever at the mercy of laws that prohibit his very existence, Jimmy is living life on the edge, while showboating his flamboyance in writing. But when his newspaper’s proprietor dies and his son (Mark Strong) takes over, Jimmy is told to be careful, to avoid falling foul of his new boss’s family values by cutting down on the cattiness. When his job security is threatened, he hatches a devious plan, setting off a chain of events with terrible consequences.
