BAFTA-winning Robbie Coltrane OBE stars as Orson Welles, who in 1972 was working on ‘F for Fake’, a faux documentary now regarded as his last masterpiece. But ‘F for Fake’ has run out of funds, and Orson is skint. However, opportunity comes from the most unlikely of places... in East Anglia! Orson accepts work at a regional television station in Norfolk where he encounters the ambitious local news woman played by Saoirse Monica Jackson, and then swiftly goes missing. The story combines a real-life, little-known episode in the extraordinary life of Orson Welles, with a dash of truly-appropriate fancy.
