The next film from the multi-award winning directorWhen Ian is sent away to serve a long prison sentence, he’s separated from his family, and his wife’s left to raise four kids all by herself. Using the repetitions of everyday life, the film focuses on the small changes on growing up while being apart. It’s another beautiful piece of work from Michael Winterbottom (’24 Hour Party People’, ‘The Killer Inside Me’) that took over five years to shoot. But not because the budget ran out, it was very much intended this way to show real change. It’s all about growing up, but in real time. And with all of Winterbottom’s signature charm, the film comes out on top.
After the screening, you’ll be able to grill Winterbottom on all his unusual styles and techniques.
‘Tender, powerful, and shot over five years, it combines formal experimentation with emotional engagement in the best traditions of Winterbottom films…’
