Stephen Poliakoff is one of Britain's pre-eminent auteurs producing prodigious and unrivalled work including Gideon's Daughter, Friends and Crocodiles, The Lost Prince, Perfect Strangersand Shooting the Past. Capturing Mary, the companion film to Joe's Palace, is set in the same exquisite empty house and is linked by the doorkeeper Joe through whose eyes we see the world. When Joe opens the door to an elderly lady, she takes him back to a time when the house thronged with the glamorous and powerful - and to a time when she was young, beautiful and talented with the world at her feet. As Joe takes her through the house Mary begins to relive her relationship with Greville White, a supremely charming man who seems to hold the rich and famous in the palm of his hand. Who was this enigmatic figure? Was he feigning friendship with Mary, but offering something much more sinister and frightening? In a dark and terrifying exploration of her youth, Mary relates a chilling story of a life captured and transformed. Maggie Smith gives a magnificent performance as Mary and is brilliantly supported by Ruth Wilson as Young Mary and David Walliams as Greville. Also included an exclusive prequel A Real Summer in which we see Young Mary strike up an unexpected friendship with a young aristocrat Geraldine. In this funny and touching story Ruth Wilson gives a remarkable performance playing both Mary and Geraldine.
