The Tale of Thomas Burberry, written by Academy Award nominee Matt Charman, is a title that's pretty self-explanatory, except there is some fiction thrown into the real life story of Burberry's famed founder.

Academy Award-winning director Asif Kapadia helmed the film, which was shot in the style of a movie trailer and stars Domhnall Gleeson, Lily James, Sienna Miller and Dominic West. Burberry loves British music and it has made stunning festive campaigns before, but this new release has us hoping that it won't be the last time the British heritage brand shakes hands with the film industry.
