MATTHEW GOODE TO LEAD
TO LEAD SKY'S NEW PERIOD SET MOVIE THE COLOUR ROOM
And he will do it together with Bridgerton star Phoebe Dynevor who will plays Stoke-on-Trent ceramic artist Clarice Cliff. This true story will see Goode
play eccentric factory owner Colley Shorter, with David Morrissey as art designer Fred Ridgeway. Luke Norris will also star. THE COLOUR ROOM follows the journey of determined factory worker Clarice, who breaks the glass ceiling and revolutionises the 20th century workplace with her ambition and creativity.
Working in a series of factories in the industrial Midlands of the 1920s, Clarice is brimming with ideas for colours and shapes and she ends up taking more and more dangerous risks, all while trying to temper the financial impact her constant moves have on her widowed mother Ann (Kerry Fox) and her youngest sister Dot (Darci Shaw).
Clarice soon impresses Colley with her talent and innovation and is apprenticed to renowned art designer Fred Ridgeway. With support from Colley and other women in the factory, Clarice designs the unprecedented Art Deco 'Bizarre' range.
Her innovative designs ensure the
factory's survival during the Great Depression, securing her a future as a household name and one of the great Art Deco designers. The film will air later this year.
