Mr. Malcolm’s List’ Director on Adapting the Regency Romance for the Modern Era
Written by Suzanne Allain and adapted from her book of the same name,
the film stars Ṣọpẹ́ Dìrísù as Jeremy Malcolm,
the season’s most eligible bachelor who is navigating
the dating pool with a literal list of expectations for his future partner.
When Zawe Ashton’s Julia Thistlewaite learns
the list is why she’s failed to snag his heart, she recruits her
cousin and Malcolm’s friend, Lord Cassidy (Oliver Jackson-Cohen), as well as her old
friend Selina Dalton (played by Freida Pinto) and hatches a plan
that will turn the tables on the man who made Julia the center of gossip during the season.
