Filmed live at the Savoy Theatre, this is the ‘utterly compelling’ (★★★★★ Daily Express) adaptation of Hanya Yanagihara’s million-copy bestseller. From visionary director Ivo van Hove (A View from the Bridge), and starring James Norton (Happy Valley, Grantchester), A Little Life follows four college friends in New York City: Jude, JB, Malcolm, and Willem. Ambition, addiction, and pride threaten to pull them apart – but their shared love of Jude holds them together. Yet Jude has a mysterious past, and as his secrets come to light, they learn that to know Jude St Francis is to understand the limitless potential of love in the face of life.
