Blithe Spirit

We regret to inform you that 2021 hasn’t suddenly reversed all the wrongs of 2020, and one glance at the news sadly proves just that. So what we really need to kickstart our year are some easy-to-watch, harmless comedies – and that is just what we’re given in Blithe Spirit, adapted from from the play written by the great Noël Coward.

To mark the film’s release, which is an endearingly overstated and entertaining mystical farce, we had the pleasure of speaking to the two lead roles, in Dan Stevens and Leslie Mann. Watch both interviews below as we talk about the tone of the film and how fun it was to shoot, as well as ghosts and of course, just how brilliant it was to work alongside Dame Judi Dench.
