The Fool is a 1990 British film, produced and directed by Christine Edzard from a script by Edzard and Olivier Stockman.
The narrative is grounded in the double life of a humble clerk who poses as the reclusive, but widely respected "Sir John." He thus moves in wealthy upper class circles and participates in grand investment schemes while living in a London slum. The movie's grand-eloquent socialist soliliquaies and detailed evocation of life in Victorian London drew on the vast personal archive of interviews about contemporary London life by Henry Mayhew.
Jacobi and Cusack had previously worked with Edzard on her film adaptation of Charles Dickens Little Dorrit in 1988.
The atmospheric camerawork was by British cinematographer Robin Vidgeon.
