P&I - Director Bio

Simon is a renowned commercials director and photographer. He was the creative director of McCann-Erickson London, writing and directing campaigns for Coca-Cola, Microsoft, Nescafe, Bacardi and MTV, amongst others. He left in 2001 to write and direct full time. Comes A Bright Day (2012) was his directorial debut. This Beautiful Fantastic was his first feature screenplay.


This Beautiful Fantastic

Part of the Best of British Strand


A whimsical rom-com, This Beautiful Fantastic embraces its warm-hearted sense of the oddball as it follows the unlikely friendship between a reclusive, agoraphobic, young woman (the charming Jessica Brown Findlay) and the grumpy old widower who lives next door (an equally endearing Tom Wilkinson). When her landlord insists she sort her neglected garden or be evicted, she has to deal with her fear of nature and get help from her neighbour, who – of course – happens to be a talented horticulturist and a tough taskmaster.
