Peeking deep into the darkest depths of England’s past
One of the most exciting and unpredictably talented directors out there, Ben Wheatley’s created this black comedy that’s set in 1648 during the Civil War where deserters flee a bloody battle. Lost and hungry they’re tricked into eating magic mushrooms by an alchemist. A beautiful and unsettling tale unravels as they fall into madness. Bonus: join in a conversation with the director and actor Reece Shearsmith following the screening. Unreserved seating. Over 18s only.
‘An impressive, haunting picture.’
