The story also examines the multi–million–dollar world of contemporary art, which offers a thematic strand–what is real, what is beauty, what is value? The arbitrary nature of the answers to these questions mirrors the moral ambiguity of all our characters, most of all Georgina.
Created and co-written by Academy Award winner Neil Jordan (The Crying Game, Mona Lisa), Sky Original Production Riviera follows the story of Georgina Clios (Stiles), the smart and resourceful second wife of a billionaire banker who dies in a yacht explosion – a catastrophe that sets in motion a dramatic chain of events that exposes the darker flipside to the Riviera’s glitz and glamour.
From directors including lead director Philipp Kadelbach (SS-GB), Hans Herbots (The Spiral), Damon Thomas (Penny Dreadful), Paul Walker (Boy Meets Girl) and cast member Adrian Lester, it’s an enthralling and powerful story set against the visually stunning backdrop of the South of France.
