The Tale of Thomas Burberry is a three-minute trailer, written by Academy Award-nominated Matt Charman and directed by Academy Award-winning Asif Kapadia. Gleeson plays protagonist Burberry, with Miller and James taking on the roles of mother of Burberry’s children and pilot Betty Dawson respectively – both fictionalised characters. West plays Polar explorer and patron of Burberry, Ernest Shackleton, whose expedition to the Antarctic in 1914 forms the central plotline.
