A Rogue in Londinium

An artist, Richard Rhys, is suspected of responsibility for the Ripper crimes in Victorian London. Through a twist of fate, he's introduced to a wealthy and philanthropic socialite, Victoria Thornton. Her compassion for him changes his heart and stokes his artistic talents. In turn, his charm awakens her desire. A great love affair begins, but when a third person enters their lives, the picture darkens.

Steeped in gothic imagery and Victorian-era sexuality, this feature film by returning auteur Whitney Hamilton, whose two screenings at New Hope Film Festival are characterized by passion and a burning desire to capture true-to-life history, A Rogue in Londinium is an imaginative take on art and the human psyche.
