The Ghost Of Richard Harris


A candid and revealing insight into the private life and public career of Richard Harris. One of the most remarkable actors of his generation, this feature documentary explores Harris’s complex and, at times, contradictory character. Each of his three sons - Jared, Jamie and Damian - brings their own perspective to bear as they summon the ghost of their late father to the screen.

"This beautifully crafted and remarkable film was a tribute to a one-off, presenting Harris in his glories and his faults."
***** The Times

"it was a pleasure to be reminded of Harris’s great performances...experiencing at first-hand that charisma, that lion-in-winter defiance"
**** The Guardian
