STUDIOCANAL today releases the brand spanking new red band trailer for the splendidly vulgar WICKED LITTLE LETTERS, the razor-sharp British comedy from director Thea Sharrock (Me Before You, The One and Only Ivan) and written by actor and screenwriter Jonny Sweet (Chickens, Greed).
Joyously reunited on screen in a flurry of f***s, s***s and b******s are stars Olivia Colman (The Crown, The Favourite, The Lost Daughter) and Jessie Buckley (Men, Women Talking, The Lost Daughter), spanning the full spectrum of profanity in a wildly entertaining tete-a-tete.
WICKED LITTLE LETTERS will be released in UK and Irish cinemas on Friday 23 February 2024.
A 1920s English seaside town bears witness to a farcical and occasionally sinister scandal in this riotous mystery comedy. Based on a stranger than fiction true story, WICKED LITTLE LETTERS follows two neighbours: deeply conservative local Edith Swan (Olivia Colman) and rowdy Irish migrant Rose Gooding (Jessie Buckley). When Edith and fellow residents begin to receive wicked letters full of unintentionally hilarious profanities, foul-mouthed Rose is charged with the crime. The anonymous letters prompt a national uproar, and a trial ensues. However, as the town’s women – led by Police Officer Gladys Moss (Anjana Vasan) – begin to investigate the crime themselves, they suspect that something is amiss, and Rose may not be the culprit after all.
Wicked Little Letters stars Academy Award® and BAFTA Film and Television winner Olivia Colman (The Lost Daughter, The Favourite, The Crown) and Academy Award® and BAFTA Film and Television nominee Jessie Buckley (The Lost Daughter, Chernobyl, Wild Rose). Alongside supporting cast Anjana Vasan (We Are Lady Parts, Killing Eve), BAFTA Nominee Timothy Spall (Mr Turner, Spencer, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 & 2), BAFTA winner Joanna Scanlan (After Love, Notes On A Scandal), Hugh Skinner (Fleabag, W1A, Mamma Mia), BAFTA winner Malachi Kirby (Small Axe, Anansi Boys), Gemma Jones (Bridget Jones trilogy, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 & 2), Lolly Adefope (Ghosts), Eileen Atkins (The Crown), and Alisha Weir(Matilda!).
