Duration: 1 hours 49 minutes
Genre: Drama

From West End glitter to a seedy dive bar in cosmopolitan Limehouse, Piccadilly brings a sparkling cocktail of influences to its portrayal of ’20s London, not least its dazzling design. Tragic heroine Shosho (Chinese American star Anna May Wong) beguiles her way from lowly nightclub kitchen hand to exotic star attraction, but a tryst with her boss could be this deco diva’s undoing. German émigré director Dupont also offers a rare depiction of London’s Chinese community and tackles the then risqué subject of interracial sex.

Piccadilly plays with a pre-recorded, specially commissioned score by Neil Brand.
