Saturday 25th February 8:15 PM - Alhambra
Director:Paddy Considine
Cert:18 Year: 2011 Length:91mins
Actor Paddy Considine has seen his first feature garlanded at the British Independent Film Awards (Best Film, Best Actress and Best Debut Director) and at Sundance (world cinema directing award, special jury prize drama). Peter Mullan is a gambling, washed-up widower Joseph, a man plagued by violence and a rage that is driving him to self-destruction. As Joseph's life spirals into turmoil a chance of redemption appears in the form of Hannah, a Christian charity shop worker. Their relationship develops to reveal that Hannah is hiding a secret of her own with devastating results for both of their lives. The performances roar off the screen, Mullan is fantastic but the real revelation of the film is the performance of Olivia Colman; so good in fact that you forget this is a movie. While it is difficult to watch, critics have showered the film with praise.
