Summary

Summary

U.K. writer/director Stephen Poliakoff -- the cinematic artist responsible for the critically acclaimed favorites The Lost Prince (2003) and Friends and Crocodiles -- guides an all-star British cast including two-time Academy Award-nominee Miranda Richardson (Damage, Tom & Viv), Bill Nighy (Love Actually), and Poliakoff regular Robert Lindsay (Bert Rigby, You're a Fool), in his latest feature, Gideon's Daughter (2006). Reprising the Sneath character that he brought to life in Crocodiles, Lindsay narrates this tale set at the tail end of the millennium. It concerns Gideon Warner (Nighy), a British public-relations whiz who hits the top of his game as politicos, entrepreneurs, and young actresses seek him out for new campaigns. On the business front, Warner has become the man to know, but his personal life begins to stand in the way of his corporate success. His daughter, Natasha (Emily Blunt), grows increasingly furious with him, and he falls in love with Stella (Richardson), a mother recently bereft of her son. Poliakoff planned this sensitive and poignant drama as a companion piece to Friends and Crocodiles, as both films reflect on British society as the curtain falls on the 20th century. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
