Loving Vincent stars Douglas Booth (The Riot Club), Jerome Flynn (Game of Thrones), Chris O’Dowd (Calvary), Saoirse Ronan (The Grand Budapest Hotel), John Sessions (The Iron Lady), Eleanor Tomlinson (Poldark), and Aidan Turner (The Hobbit).
It is directed by Dorota Kobiela (The Little Postman) and Oscar-winner Hugh Welchman (Peter & The Wolf), produced by Welchman and Ivan Mactaggart (My Week with Marilyn) and written by Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman.
Executive producers are Sean Bobbitt and David Parfitt.
