Product description

Product Description

The BBC 1 film from acclaimed writer-director, Stephen Poliakoff, Joe's Palace, is a characteristically engrossing work.

It features a stellar cast, led by Michael Gambon (Perfect Strangers, Gosford Park), Rupert Penry-Jones (Spooks), Kelly Reilly (Mrs Henderson Presents), Rebecca Hall (Starter For Ten) and newcomer Danny Lee Wynter, who takes the title role.

Joe's Palace explores the relationship between the two central characters, Elliot (Michael Gambon), a reclusive billionaire, and Joe (Danny Lee Wynter), the teenage son of a cleaner who takes care of a grand neighbouring house.

The beautiful but dormant house is owned, though not inhabited, by Elliot who lives close by. It has many echoes of the past – maybe it was once grand offices, or a place for parties and functions. Elliot has inherited the house and its mysteries from his now-dead father.

Part messenger, part protégé, Joe is a link between Elliot and the outside world as their story and the stories of the visitors to the empty house ricochet and reverberate. When Richard (Rupert Penry-Jones), a charming, high-flying politician, conducts a passionate and clandestine love affair with Charlotte (Kelly Reilly) at Elliot's mansion, Joe begins to question his innocent view of the world. In this contemporary film about loneliness and loss, the sins of the father are finally revealed in an emotionally devastating climax.

Danny Lee Wynter also plays the same role of caretaker Joe in Capturing Mary, which followed on BBC 2 with a cast led by Maggie Smith (Ladies In Lavender), David Walliams (Little Britain) and Ruth Wilson (Jane Eyre). he two films together are linked by an exquisite house frozen in time, and a young highly individual man, Joe, through whose eyes we see the world.
