New UK Directors Day. Both directors will be present

Keswick Film Club likes to support new British talent. Today we show two by new UK Directors. Two very different films, we hope they show the range of films being produced today.

In the second of our films today, Ciaran Hinds plays Max who has just lost his wife. He goes back to a place where his family used to spend their summer holidays in an attempt to forget his sorrows. In a series of flashbacks, we follow his memories over a summer when his meeting with a wealthy family lead to tragedy.

‘The Sea’ was premiered at Edinburgh this year and was adapted by the author himself, John Banville, from his Man Booker prize winning book of the same name.

‘The film is beautifully shot with a stark contrast between the bleak, raging waves of the sea in the present, and the sun-kissed sandy beach of the past’ - Screenkicker. Stephen Brown also managed to persuade an array of British actors including Charlotte Rampling, Sinead Cussack and Rufus Sewell. A good start to his career? Let’s see.

Stephen will be here for a Q & A session after the film at about 6.30.
