EP_SoHo_Gentleman Jack_May 19
An iconic life.
Gentleman Jack brings all the warmth, wit and complexity of the writing of Sally Wainwright (Happy Valley, Last Tango In Halifax) to the remarkable story of Anne Lister. Charismatic, swashbuckling Anne Lister – who walked like a man and charmed her way into high society – is determined to transform the fate of her ancestral home, Shibden Hall.
To do this, she must re-open her coal mines and marry well. But Anne has no intention of marrying a man. True to her own nature, she plans to marry a woman – and embarks on an extraordinary, epic, unconventional love story.
Starring Suranne Jones (Doctor Foster), Sophie Rundle (Peaky Blinders), Gemma Whelan (Game of Thrones), Timothy West (Last Tango in Halifax), Gemma Jones (Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince), Sofie Gråbøl (The Killing), Katherine Kelly (Happy Valley) and Stephanie Cole (Waiting For God).
