The story of the protest at the 1970 Miss World competition has finally found its way onto the big screen courtesy of Philippa Lowthorpe and an all-star cast. The red carpet for the film’s World Premiere took place in London this evening and we were there to speak to the cast and crew.
The film stars Keira Knightley, Gugu Mbatha-Raw & Jesse Buckley and focuses on the 1970 Miss World competition and the incident when protestors took to the stage to disrupt the event. The film also stars Keeley Hawes, Suki Waterhouse, Greg Kinnear, Rhys Ifans, Phyllis Logan, Lesley Manville and Emma Corrin.
The film was directed by Philippa Lowthorpe from a script by Rebecca Frayn (who adapted her own story for the screen) and Gaby Chiappe.
Colin Hart and Scott Davis were our men on the carpet, wanting World Peace. Misbehaviour is released in UK cinemas on the 13th of March, 2020.
