The long-awaited film Supernova, filmed in and around some of the Lake District's best-loved beauty spots, has finally been released after being delayed because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

In Supernova, Sam and Tusker, played by Colin Firth and Stanley Tucci, grapple with early-onset dementia.

Supernova was filmed mainly around Crummock Water and Keswick, with some shots on the A66 and in Sedbergh.
