Looking for the Girl

Looking for the Girl

Directed by Iain Forsyth, Jane Pollard

Dean Smith is an ageing photographer. He’s almost 70, but there’s still a glint in his eye. TV’s ‘face of culture’, Miranda Walker, is interviewing him for television and asks about his muse. Once the cameras are off the question unlocks a story about Charlotte, aged 19, a Penthouse model. As old magazines and photographs are pulled from shelves it emerges that he’s a man consumed by an untouchable fantasy. A two-dimensional image sparked a moment of sexual awakening that he’s spent a lifetime trying to recapture.

An ageing photographer tells a reporter the story of his muse once the cameras are off.

Cast: Kenneth Cranham, Monica Dolan, Chloe Hayward
