The world premiere of ‘Firebrand’ received an 8 minute standing ovation at the Cannes Film Festival.

Firebrand stars Jude Law, Alicia Vikander and Simon Russell Beale and is directed by Karim Aïnouz. The film tells the story of Henry VIII’s sixth and last wife, Catherine Parr. Even as Henry’s wife and Queen Consort, Catherine’s radical views put her in conflict with the church and threatened her survival.
