The father–son crossover we all needed, Jude Law and son Raff star in new film ‘The Hat’

Rafferty Law

It's no secret that the Jude Law fan club is large and vocal here at RUSSH. Rising to fame in the mid-1990s, his role as Dickie Greenleaf alongside Gwyneth Paltrow and Matt Damon in The Talented Mr Ripley will live rent free in our minds for years to come. Now, the focus is slowly shifting to his famous children – namely, his son Raff Law – the actor's latest film blessing us with the father-son crossover we didn't know we needed.

Law will star alongside his son Raff for the first time in the The Hat, a short film the pair filmed on an iPhone during the midst of lockdown. The project is already lined up for release this November, premiering at Raindance Film Festival with all proceeds being donated to Teenage Cancer Trust and Teen Cancer America.

The promotional poster for the film – directed by Darren Strowger - has been released and it's almost impossible to tell the pair apart in their open-collared white shirts and blue jackets. While the details of the film's plot have been kept heavily under wraps, the news that Pete Townshend, lead guitarist and principal songwriter of The Who, has written the original score is more than enough to keep us intrigued.

Although this may be their first film together, Raff is not stranger to the silver screen. The 24-year-old and eldest child of Jude Law and Sadie Frost is set to star in the upcoming movie Twist, a modern rendition of Charles Dickens' classic novel, Oliver Twist – who Raff will play. Staring alongside Hollywood heavyweights Michael Caine, Lena Heady and singer-songwriter Rita Ora, it's clear that the young actor is following in his father's footsteps.
