One Man, Two Guvnors – Hellfire@Home

While all cinemas and theatres in the UK are closed due to the lockdown we will be watching movies and theatre performances from the comfort of our living rooms. We’re happy to say that tonight we will be watching One Man, Two Guvnors.

As part of our new remote festival, Hellfire@Home, we will share links to various movies and theatre performances so we can all watch them together at home. The first of which, provided by the National Theatre and their new National Theatre at Home initiative, is One Man, Two Guvnors an amazing production from 2011 starring James Corden.

“One Man, Two Guvnors”
starring James Corden
National Theatre

Saturday 4 April 2020, 8pm

Synopsis:
Fired from his skiffle band, Francis Henshall (Corden) becomes minder to Roscoe Crabbe, a small time East End hood, now in Brighton to collect £6,000 from his fiancée’s dad. But Roscoe is really his sister Rachel posing as her own dead brother, who’s been killed by her boyfriend Stanley Stubbers.

Holed up at The Cricketers’ Arms, the permanently ravenous Francis spots the chance of an extra meal ticket and takes a second job with one Stanley Stubbers, who is hiding from the police and waiting to be re-united with Rachel. To prevent discovery, Francis must keep his two guvnors apart. Simple.

While we are all watching the performance we encourage you to join us in our Facebook Group for a chat.

Hellfire@Home Festival launch

We are in unprecedented and unknown territory right now. Many countries are in lockdown while in other places individuals are self-isolating in order to stem the spread of the COVID-19 disease.

So what we are doing is launching a new festival specifically for those who are unable to attend events due to the closure of many entertainment buildings.

Hellfire@Home Festival is a brand new film festival where you can attend without leaving your living room.

Over the course of the next few weeks or months we will announce movies that we can all watch together (provided you have it on DVD/Blu-Ray or are streaming it from Netflix/Amazon Prime, etc). While we all watch it we can chat in our Facebook Group. In the group you can also suggest future movies to watch. If there are any free-to-view short films available online please also share them.

We are all in this together so if you have produced a movie, short film or documentary and would like viewers tell us about it.

We wish you all good health, stay safe, wash your hands and follow your Government’s advice.

Please bear in mind that this new festival is completely free of charge (barring your Netflix, etc, subscription). But Hellfire Film Festival still relies on an income to be able to deliver our programme so if you can spare anything please consider donating to our Website Fund.
