When I first met Tom Greeves he was playing the lead in a film about a Conservative candidate who forms his own party and tries to take on the system.
It’s an independent, low-budget film and I’m sure it’s taken a huge amount of work to finally get it finished and released. It’s on Distrify, which seems to be a sort of Bandcamp for films. You can pay to watch the film, or pay a bit more to download it. I downloaded it this morning and watched it this evening.
It’s brilliant. Tom is (as always) hilarious and the whole thing is somehow both realistic and ridiculous. As a Tory speechwriter and stand-up comedian in real life, Tom plays the conservative completely convincingly while also taking the piss perfectly.
