The Laureate to film in May
A long-gestating film project about poet and novelist Robert Graves (pictured) is due to film in the UK and Ireland in late spring.
The Laureate is the brainchild of writer/director William Nunez and centres on the unusual circumstances surrounding Graves’ first marriage to Nancy Nicholson, a period which saw him living with his wife and their four children as well as his mistress, the American poet Laura Riding.
Nunez’ production company is behind the film, working alongside Subotica Entertainment in Ireland. Subotica’s Aoife O’Sullivan and Tristan Lynch are among the producers.
