Adapted from the novel “Now and Then” (image above via GoodReads) by the late William Corlett, The LGBTQ+ British drama “ Now & Then” (THR, 2020) is—at its heart—the story of a Mother and son finding their way to understanding and love.

The talented British actor Richard Armitage (image above, IMDB 2020)  portrays the 50 year old Christopher Metcalfe who returns home for his father’s funeral, “confronting memories of his time in school and an intense, passionate affair he shared with fellow student, Stephen Walker” (THR, 2020).  And there will also be flashback scenes with younger actors portraying Christopher and Stephen.

Richard Armitage shared what drew him to this project (THR, 2020):

“This is a beautiful script.  The character of Chris resonated with me powerfully. I look forward to inhabiting the role and bringing this script to life,” (THR, 2020).

I’m looking forward to experiencing what is sure to be a heartfelt and moving Richard Armitage  film portrayal.

And with the artistically prolific Richard Armitage also filming “The Man from Rome” in 2021, his fans are going to have  a bounty of his storytelling to enjoy in the coming years.


About Gratiana Lovelace

Gratiana Lovelace is my nom de plume for my creative writing and blogging. I write romantic stories in different sub genres. The stories just tumble out of me. My resurgence in creative writing occurred when I viewed the BBC miniseries of Elizabeth Gaskell's novel North & South in February 2010. The exquisitely talented British actor portraying the male lead John Thornton in North & South--Richard Crispin Armitage--became my unofficial muse. I have written over 50 script stories about love--some are fan fiction, but most are original stories--that I am just beginning to share with others on private writer sites, and here on my blog. And as you know, my blog here is also relatively new--since August 2011. But, I'm having fun and I hope you enjoy reading my blog essays and my stories. Cheers! Grati ;-> upd 12/18/11
