“Joy and horror and sadness and all those big emotions. I’ve seen it hundreds of times now, in fragments and eventually coming together, and it still gets me. It’s very emotional. It’s all about Freddie. Yes, we are in there, but the story is about Freddie and that was always the aim.

“Obviously Freddie is so precious to us. One of the great breakthroughs early on was screenwriter Peter Morgan saying, ‘This is a film about family.’ It’s about all the stuff that happens in a family – some good, some bad, the going away, the searching for independence and then the nurture of the family.”

“It’s a film about that stuff, on one level, and then it’s about Freddie’s emerging talent, his amazing resilience and sense of humour.”
