Hilary Mantel: Return to Wolf Hall

Synopsis

When Hilary Mantel wrote the first lines of Wolf Hall in 2005 she had no idea of the magnitude of the task awaiting her, or that it would occupy her for the next 15 years. The story of Thomas Cromwell as fixer in chief to Henry VIII has catapulted Hilary Mantel into the literary stratosphere. Made across six months, in the run up to publication of its sequel, The Mirror and the Light, the film enjoys exclusive and extensive access to one of the world’s greatest living writers, at the peak of her powers.
