BAFTA award-winning and Golden Globe nominated James McAvoy (Split, X-Men franchise, His Dark Materials) and BAFTA award-winning and Emmy nominated Sharon Horgan (Catastrophe, The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, Military Wives) star in multi award-winning writer, Dennis Kelly’s (Utopia, Pulling, The Third Day) searingly funny and painfully poignant love story, Together.
Directed by the Academy, Emmy and BAFTA award-winning director, Stephen Daldry (The Crown, Billy Elliot, The Reader) the film is set in the UK from the first days of the Covid19 lockdown in March 2020 until present day. Together is produced by Guy Heeley (Locke, Denial, London Spy) and the multi-award winning West End and Broadway theatre producer Sonia Friedman (TV credits include: Uncle Vanya, The Dresser, Wolf Hall).
This is the story of a family, like so many, who found a way to survive - together. It is the hilarious and heart-breaking story of a husband and wife who are forced to re-evaluate themselves and their relationship through the reality of lockdown.
