British Liberal Party leader Jeremy Thorpe is accused of conspiracy to murder his gay ex-lover and forced to stand trial in 1979.
Hugh Grant has said that eighty percent of his performance was hair and makeup, referring to the transformative work of hair and makeup designer Daniel Phillips. Grant had worked with Phillips previously on the film Florence Foster Jenkins (2016). To achieve Jeremy Thorpe's signature gaunt appearance, Grant actively lost weight through months of intense outdoor cycling. The rest of his physical transformation into Thorpe he credits to the use of brown contact lenses, Phillips' hair and makeup design, and to the costumes of designer Suzanne Cave.
