They are at the head of an ensemble that also features Andrew Scott (Sherlock), Jeremy Irvine (War Horse), Anna Chancellor (The Dreamers) and Sheila Hancock (The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas) in the story of Bella Brown (Findlay), a young woman who dreams of writing and illustrating children's books. But she is dealing with various issues, including her abandonment as a child, her OCD and her dictatorial boss at the library.
Things start to change when her landlord orders her to deal with her neglected garden, which doesn't exactly gel with a paralysing fear of flora and fauna. But it brings her into contact with the cantankerous, loveless, rich old Alfie Stephenson (Wilkinson), who lives next door and just so happens to have the greenest thumbs around.
Described by its producers – including AMBI Pictures' Andrea Iervolino and Monika Bacardi (The Humbling) alongside Christine Alderson (Valhalla) and her team – as a contemporary fairy tale, the film is currently shooting in London.
