Director: Michael Pearce • Starring: Jessie Buckley, Johnny Flynn, Geraldine James
Constrained by the strict rules of her domineering mother, a troubled woman seizes the opportunity for freedom and rebellion presented by the arrival of a stranger to her island community, even as suspicion mounts amidst a string of murders. Buckley (War and Peace; The Woman in White) moves from TV to film stardom with “a terrific central performance” (The Telegraph), while impressive debutant Pearce has been compared to Hitchcock and Roeg for his gripping use of suspense and twisted psychological depth – Jersey has never seemed more wild!
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.
