Full film details

Struggling for literary inspiration, crime novelist Charles Condomine (Dan Stevens) can’t seem to shift the writer’s block that’s plagued his work for some time. Eventually deciding to seek external help, he invites an eccentric mystic, Madame Arcati (Dame Judi Dench), to his home to perform a séance.

However, the purposeful author doesn’t quite anticipate how powerful Arcati’s powers are, and she inadvertently recovers the spirit of his long-dead wife, Elvira (Leslie Mann). Having remarried since, Charles is placed in an unusual love triangle with his jealous former soulmate and living wife, Ruth (Isla Fisher), battling for his affection.

Desperate to resolve the situation, Charles resummons the mysterious Madame Arcati. But the peculiar circumstances throw a series of obstacles his way, and there’s only so many he can hurdle.

Based on Noel Coward’s much-loved 1941 play of the same name, Blithe Spirit stars Academy Award winner Dame Judi Dench (All Is True, Red Joan, Murder on the Orient Express), Isla Fisher (Greed, Tag, The Great Gatsby), Leslie Mann (Motherless Brooklyn, Welcome to Marwen, How To Be Single) and Dan Stevens (Legion, Beauty and the Beast, Downton Abbey).
