The Tale of Thomas Burberry weaves the young founder of Burberry in with the brand’s connection to key brand ambassadors and markets. Burberry was established in 1856 when 21-year-old Thomas Burberry, a former draper’s apprentice, opened his own store in Basingstoke, Hampshire, England. He died in 1926, years before Betty Kirby-Green flew the Burberry Plane in 1937.

Burberry is currently celebrating its 160th anniversary, so they’ve done what any other dominant brand would do in such circumstances: make a massively ambitious film about it.

This no-expense-spared approach includes Hollywood-scale production values, multiple set locations and a cast that features Domhnall Gleeson, Sienna Miller, Dominic West and Lily James. The script was written by Academy Award-nominated Matt Charman (Bridge of SpiesSuite Française, Patriots Day) and directed by Academy Award-winning Asif Kapadia (The Warrior, Senna, Amy), all set to an epic soundtrack.
