About the film

Starfish is based on the true-life story of Tom and Nicola Ray (Tom Riley and Joanne Froggatt).When Tom puts his small daughter to bed one chilly December evening, he has everything a man could want – a beautiful wife and a second baby on the way to complete their perfect family. By the next morning, all is in jeopardy as Tom succumbs to a devastating illness. Set against the beautiful backdrop of Rutland in the East Midlands, Starfish is a powerfully honest portrayal of the emotional depths that a family can reach when confronted with the unimaginable. It is the story of Tom and Nic Ray’s love, and the survival of that love against all odds.

Starfish was nominated for the Michael Powell Award for Best British Feature at the Edinburgh International Film Festival 2016.
