Hilary Mantel : Return To Wolf Hall

Hilary Mantel delves into her past in a candid new film, which reveals her vivid imagination and tells a tale of growing up with a dark family secret.

Shot over six months in the run up to publication of The Mirror And The Light, the final book in Hilary Mantel’s Booker-winning Tudor trilogy, the film delivers exclusive and extensive access to one of the world’s greatest living writers.

Intertwining the themes of the Wolf Hall trilogy – power, faith, kingship and Englishness – with stories from Hilary’s own life, the film also explores how the world of Thomas Cromwell reverberates in our world today.
