A Little Life

Director: Ivo van Hove

Cast: James Norton, Luke Thompson, Omari Douglas


Following a sell-out West End run, Ivo van Hove’s critically acclaimed, record-breaking production of the million-copy best-seller by Hanya Yanagihara starring James Norton, Luke Thompson, Omari Douglas and many more stars from stage and screen is coming to our big screen.

A Little Life follows four college friends in New York City: aspiring actor Willem, successful architect Malcolm, struggling artist JB, and prodigious lawyer Jude. As ambition, addiction, and pride threaten to pull the group apart, they always find themselves bound by their love for Jude and the mysteries of his past. But when those secrets come to light, they finally learn that to know Jude St Francis is to understand the limitless potential of love in the face of life.
