To Olivia is soon arriving on Sky Cinema and follows the life of novelist Roald Dahl as he faces some horrific trauma. The British film stars Hugh Bonneville alongside Bodyguard star Keeley Hawes, playing his wife Patricia Neal. The movie is also the final film starring Geoffrey Palmer – here is everything there is to know about the film.

When is To Olivia out?

To Olivia will be released in cinemas and on Sky Cinema in February 2021.

At the moment the exact date has not been set, and given how cinemas have closed and reopened over the past few months, it would not be unlikely this date could move.

However, its release date on Sky Cinema will likely remain the same.

Express.co.uk will update this article if more information is released.

What is To Olivia about?

The official synopsis reads: “It’s 1962 and Roald Dahl, an eccentric, burgeoning children’s author and his wife, Patricia Neal, a glamourous Hollywood movie star, have retreated to the English countryside to bring up their expanding young family.

“Tragically, their lives are turned upside down by the devastating death of their daughter Olivia and as the couple struggle through the unimaginable loss, their shared grief becomes a source of redemption and strength which changes their lives forever.”

The life of Roald Dahl has not been told a great many times on the big screen, despite his contemporaries such as JRR Tolkien and AA Milne having had their lives told in film many times.

In this version, the focus will not just be on Roald, as played by Hugh Bonneville, but also his Hollywood starlet wife Patricia Neal, and their difficult marriage along with the tragedies they endured together, and then apart.

Who is in the cast of To Olivia?

Hugh Bonneville plays Road Dahl, while Patricia Neal is played by Keeley Hawes.

The film is also the final role of Geoffrey Palmer, who plays Geoffrey Fisher, Roald’s headmaster who was later named the Archbishop of Canterbury after joining the priesthood.

He stars opposite Outlander star Sam Heughan, who plays Hollywood icon Paul Newman.

Conleth Hill, of Game of Thrones fame, plays American director Marty Ritt.
