film  Living with the Tudors
Author  Nina Pope, Karen Guthrie
Date  2007

Shot over an idyllic English summer from both behind the scenes and in front, the directors Pope & Guthrie also appear before the camera in their 16th century roles of ‘limners’ or Tudor artists - painting miniature portraits of Kentwell’s gentry.  This refined portraiture echoes the film’s persistent affectionate analysis of its central
characters as we discover what these secretive enthusiasts are escaping from – and to.
