In a romantic new video for the single “Let Her Love In,” Righton enlisted his wife, Keira Knightley, to make a rather rosy cameo. The video was shot on an iPhone in the South of France, and Righton directed and edited the footage himself. Watch it below:
Alongside Cate Blanchett (which is UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador), Kit Harrington, Juliet Stevenson, Peter Capaldi, Stanley Tucci, Chiwetel Ejiofor,Douglas Booth, Jesse Eisenberg and Neil Gaiman, Keira has taken part in a reading of a poem written by Jenifer Toksvig highlighting the current refugee crisis, entitled ‘What They Took With Them’.
The video is exclusively released on the Facebook platform. The centre-piece of the UN Refugee Agency’s #WithRefugees campaign is a petition asking governments to ensure all refugee children can go to school, all refugees have a safe place to live and that all refugees can work and contribute to their local community.
It already has nearly 900,000 signatures and will be delivered to the UN Secretary General and the President of the UN General Assembly on Friday September 16 ahead of the historic UN Summit on Addressing Large Movements of Refugees and Migrants on September 19.
Watch the short version below:

For the first time ever, this year’s 30-page portfolio—featuring no fewer than 44 Blighty icons, from Eddie Redmayne to Dame Judi Dench—comes accompanied by a short film, directed by Bell and viewable right here on VF.com. The film, told in three parts, depicts the Brits “Preparing for War”, then “Coming to America” to infiltrate the film industry. Given the number of British actors nominated for Academy Awards this year, the title of the third film should come as no surprise: “Victory Is Assured.”
You can now view the whole interview from Actors on Actors, when Keira had an in-depth discussion with fellow actor Ethan Hawke.
