|The National Gallery in London has flooded, and senior curator Quentin Lester has a dramatic solution. He proposes that the entire collection of priceless paintings should be removed from London and stored in an abandoned slate mine inside a Welsh mountain, as they were during the Second World War. Soon after Quentin is settled in North Wales—admittedly more at home in a cave among his paintings than he is with other people—he unwittingly sets in motion a series of events that wake up this sleepy, charming town. After mistaking local boy Dylan Hughes for an art history genius, Quentin finds himself in the middle of mayhem. It seems all of the town’s quirkiest characters, from the butcher who still sees Elvis to an eight-year-old criminal genius, want a piece of the paintings he is trying so hard to preserve! Based on Frank Cottrell Boyce's best-selling children's novel, Framed stars Trevor Eve (Heat of the Sun) as Quentin and Eve Myles (Little Dorrit, Torchwood) as Angharad, the enigmatic local schoolteacher with an eye for Quentin; and introduces Samuel Davies as young Dylan Hughes.|
Editor's NoteFrank Contrell Boyle's best-selling novel gets adapted for the screen by director Andy De Emmory in this drama starring Trevor Eve and Eve Myles. When a flood threatens to destroy the priceless works of art in London's National Gallery, senior curator Quentin Lester (Eve) suggests that the paintings be immediately relocated to a decommissioned slate mine in the mountains of Wales. Relocating to a quiet, nearby town to keep watch over the paintings, Quentin inadvertently causes mass chaos when he mistakes a local child for an art history prodigy, prompting all of the locals to try and claim the treasured works of art for themselves.
