The Hippopotamus

Q&A via satellite: Join us for a special Q&A screening of The Hippopotamus with Stephen Fry, cast and filmmakers - moderated by Mark Kermode - live by satellite from the Hay Festival.

Disgraced poet Ted Wallace (Roger Allam) is summoned to his friends Lord and Lady Loganʼs (Matthew Modine & Fiona Shaw) country manor, Swafford Hall, to investigate a series of unexplained miracle healings.

Ted tracks down the perpetrator of the phenomena, fifteen-year-old David Logan (Tommy Knight), whose parents believe he has healing hands. Unaware that David is using some unorthodox methods, the Logan’s are set on sharing their sons gift with the world. With a poet’s passion for the truth, Ted hurries to debunk the miracles and save a young man from a lifetime of embarrassment.
