Russell Brand ponders Jesus, Gandhi, Malcolm X and his own political awakening
The Pillow Cinema have made it their mission to turn your movie nights into unforgettable experiences. After a glorious summer of screening s they now take their magic to the beautiful Sutton House, a stunning Tudor home run by The National Trust in the heart of Hackney. Filled with oak-panelled rooms and charming original features, it’s the perfect setting for cosying up with a movie and a loved one this winter. Brand: A Second Coming follows comedian Russell Brand’s spiritual journey from addict and Hollywood star to self-proclaimed revolutionary and explores our relationship to the consumerism and individualism that drives our society and distracts us at a time when it’s vital for all of us to wake up and take action. Certificate: 15. Runtime: 1 hour 40 minutes. Doors to Sutton House open half an hour before the event. The film will start at the advertised time, and no trailers will be shown in advance. The fatboy bean bags are huge, and seat one person spaciously or two people snuggled up. If lounging's not really your thing, you can also grab a more traditional seat. Either way, there'll be blankets and cushions available for all.
