The Crimson Petal and The White (UK)
Based on the best-selling novel by Michel Faber this four part mini-series follows William Rackham, a man tormented by debt and an unstable wife, who finds solace when he seeks out renowned young prostitute, Sugar. As he falls under her spell, his life begins to transform...
Born in Hong Kong to father Adrian (banker) and mother Janet (journalist), Romola Garai's unusual name ...
Sugar is a sexually adept prostitute whose reputation for sensuality precedes her; alluring and highly sought after she ‘never disappoints’. Her intelligence and wit sets her apart - self-educated and ambitious, she’s able to engage in heated discussion whilst satisfying her clients.
Having spent years at the mercy of men, Sugar yearns for a better life and craves the freedom to make a living using her brain rather than her body. When not at work Sugar pens a dark, gothic novel in which a prostitute enacts revenge on all the men who have wronged her - a theme that has threatened to seep into reality.
Mourning the recent death of her friend Elizabeth, beaten by two punters, Sugar is determined to flee the hell that is St. Giles. With the arrival of William Rackham, this escape becomes a tangible prospect - and one that Sugar is keen to exploit.
