To celebrate the release of Sulphur and White, which hits UK cinemas this week, we had the pleasure of sitting down the film’s cast, director and real-life subject to chat about its release, its huge importance and why the time is right for the story to be told.
Directed by Julian Jarrold (Brideshead Revisited), the film tells the true-life story of David Tait, a man who suffered horrific childhood trauma and found solace years later in the redemptive power of love and climibing Mount Everest for the NSPCC. Jarold talks about his friendship and admiration for him whilst Tait talks about watching the filmmaking process from afar and watching the final result.
In addition, we spoke to cast members Mark Stanley (who portrays Tait in the film), Emily Beecham and Dougray Scott about their response to the script and David’s story, the film sensitively and thoughtfully tackling the traumas and why now is the right time to share it with the world.
