The Hippopotamus

1h 30m Comedy 2017

An adaptation from the debut novel by Stephen Fry about a disgraced poet who is summoned to his friend’s country manor to investigate a series of unexplained miracle healings.

“An old-fashioned romp through the eccentricities of the upper classes, it’s a fun mystery with a nicely filthy mind.” ~Total Film

“We’re mostly watching Allam scowling at the eccentrics passing through his eyeline – but it’s still a pleasure, and often a joy, to watch the star measuring out and savouring Fry’s rich wordplay like fingers of scotch.” ~Mike McCahill, The Guardian
