The last film of late actress Natasha Richardson, ‘The Wildest Dream’

An exclusive charity screening of Natasha Richardson’s last film, The Wildest Dream, will be hosted at the BFI IMAX on Tuesday 21 September. This will be held in memory of Natasha and in aid of NAT (National AIDS Trust) the charity that she was a passionate Ambassador of for over ten years until her tragic death in 2009. 

The Wildest Dream is a critically acclaimed feature film which follows the story of British adventurer George Mallory and his 1924 attempt to be the first to summit Mount Everest. The film is narrated by Natasha’s husband, Liam Neeson, and also features the voices of Ralph Fiennes, Hugh Dancy and Alan Rickman. Natasha plays Mallory’s beloved wife in the film.  

The film has received fantastic media interest across the world and this is a great opportunity for guests to see it prior to its UK opening and to show their support for NAT - a charity which Natasha cared for deeply.   

The screening will be followed by a black-tie reception at the IMAX cinema which will be attended by a number of high-profile guests, including David Attenborough, Bonita Norris, Leo Houlding and members of Natasha’s family.  

NAT is the UK’s leading HIV policy charity dedicated to transforming the UK’s response to HIV. 

Deborah Jack, Chief Executive of NAT, says;

“We are honoured that this charity screening of Natasha’s last film is being held in aid of NAT. Natasha was a fantastic ambassador for the charity and she is sorely missed.”
