virginia woolf's night and day

Jane Austen meets Woody Allen in Edwardian England. 


Based on Virginia Woolf’s novel, Night and Day is a surprisingly romantic comedy about a 30-something literary heiress, Katharine Hilbery, who does everything she can to avoid romance and marriage. 

In Short

A woman on the brink of spinsterhood, marriage, rebellion and sexual awakening, Katharine’s journey is a comedic exploration of the roles open to adult women. In this most Austenish of Virginia Woolf’s novels, the heroine ironically must run from marriage and security to discover what it is she wants for herself. 

The Production

Night and Day - an adaptation of Virginia Woolf's most romantic novel is a new film written by Justine Waddell (Target, The Fall, Chaos) and produced by Christopher Figg (Coriolanus, We Need to Talk about Kevin) and Meg Thomson (Flying Home, Siren, Dot the 1). Developed with the BFI development fund Night and Day seeks to occupy the same marketplace as period films such as The Favourite  and Love and Friendship.
