Director: Clio Barnard ● Starring: Ruth Wilson, Mark Stanley, Sean Bean.
Loosely based on Rose Tremain’s novel Trespass, Barnard’s film follows Alice, a professional sheep shearer, who returns to the family farm after her father’s death. Alice is haunted by the darkness of her teenage years, and is forced to fight with her brother, who has let the farm fall into debt.
The run-down farm and bleak Yorkshire countryside are well captured, and Wilson gives a powerful performance as a young woman ground down by the injustices of her past life and present situation.
Plus a BRIT School Showcase film, screened in partnership with the School’s Film & Media Production department. For this film we are showing A Bright Girl She Was (3.23 min), directed by Nancy-Belle Hannah-Griffiths.
With one screening at 7.30pm ONLY.
