When this short film came out over a year ago I was one of the first people who got to watch it. I absolutely loved it and now you can watch it too – for free!! Please watch and share your feedback!
From Flying Dutchman Films:
The setting for ‘I Am Henry’ is Syon Abbey. Henry VIII is dead and his body is resting at the abbey overnight, surrounded by candles and guarded by a monk, while on its journey from Whitehall Palace to Windsor Castle for burial. At Syon, Henry’s spirit meets those of Anne Boleyn, Catherine of Aragon and Henry, Duke of Cornwall, his short-lived son by Catherine, who are keen to share their thoughts of him. Henry, of course, cannot help but confront them and put forward his own point of view.
There is a yearning quality to the story as Henry is confronted with his misdeeds, especially his betrayal of Anne, and though Henry insists he regrets nothing, we’re left uncertain this is actually the case.
Anchored by sensational performances from Sebastian Street and Fleur Keith, I Am Henry is visually stunning and entirely compelling.
