Starfish

2016, 95 minutes

True life story of a family's struggle for survival

Starfish is based on the true-life story of Tom (Tom Riley) and Nicola Ray (Joanne Froggatt), whose lives changed overnight and beyond recognition when Tom contracted a rare and life threatening illness. Tom survived, but at a price. Starfish is not simply a story about bad things happening to good people; it is a testament to the incredible things people are capable of when confronted with the unimaginable. It is a story of survival against the odds, not only for Tom but for their proud family unit. Tom and Nic show us, above all, what can be overcome when love is unconditional.
