The Scarlet Tunic, on show at the Cannes Film Festival, is a romantic tragedy adapted from Thomas Hardy’s short story The Melancholy Hussar. Beaconsfield consultancy Milestone created the poster for Scorpio Productions. ‘Our choice of images and type on the poster is designed to give the film a big budget, classic Merchant Ivory feel,’ says Milestone director Jay Cowper. The Scarlet Tunic is released in the UK this summer.
