Esteemed war poet Robert Graves (Tom Hughes), married to Nancy Nicholson (Laura Haddock), writes to American poet Laura Riding (Dianna Agron) seeking to rekindle his passion for poetry and writing. As Riding enters the family home and a patriarchal world of London's writers and clubs, worlds are turned upside down. William Nunez's ten-year-long battle to make THE LAUREATE has produced a film that questions who is active and passive in the lives that we lead and the consequences of our actions. Endorsed by Graves' family, this film provides an entry point into a world recovering from war and the creative works that followed in response.

We hope to welcome director William Nunez and actors Tom Hughes and Laura Haddock for a Q&A following the film.
