Director: Cory Finley • Starring: Olivia Cooke, Anya Taylor-Joy and Anton Yelchin.
This contemporary noir offers a razor-sharp new twist on the ‘poor little rich girl’ genre. Teenager Amanda (Brit Cooke, unnervingly good) doesn’t feel any emotion, and is a locally notorious therapy outpatient after a veterinary misadventure. She and pampered Lily become unlikely friends, and Lily has a family problem to solve… Writer-director Finley is an outstanding talent, backed up by memorable editing, sound and score – and both comic relief and pathos from Yelchin in one of the final roles of his tragically short career.
Plus a BRIT School Showcase film, screened in partnership with the School’s Film & Media Production department. For this film we are showing Tom Horton (U) (4.15 min), directed by Lucas Aliaga-Hurt & Victoria Man. A portrait of a marine biologist based in Penzance.
With one showing at 7.30pm ONLY.
