Catch this classic Brit flick in the cosy confines of Sutton House
It's time for a cinema revolution…and it's gonna be stuffed with feathers. Situated in the heart of East London, Pillow Cinema have transformed the stunning Tudor home Sutton House into a cosy space filled with fatboy bean bags. They’ll be screening a great range of films, so come and join them for the loveliest, comfiest, cosiest cinema experience this side of a fluffy cloud. For this screening, prepare to see the endearing book-to-film adaptation About A Boy. Starring a fresh-faced Nicholas Hoult and an ever-charming Hugh Grant, this film adaptation of the best selling Nick Hornby book follows the relationship between bachelor-cum-manchild Will and hopeless schoolkid Marcus, the son of one of Will's female conquests. With a superb soundtrack composed by Badly Drawn Boy and a heartwarming storyline, this is a Brit flick that you can't help but enjoy. "About a Boy is better than a feelgood movie, it's a feelgreat movie -- genuinely clever, affecting when you least expect it to be and funny from start to finish." – Wall Street Journal "Hugh Grant, who has a good line in charm, has never been more charming than in About A Boy." – Roger Ebert Certificate: PG. Runtime: 1 hour 41 minutes. The doors at Sutton House open half an hour before the event, giving you time to grab a seat and a drink from our bar. No trailers are shown, so the film will start at the start time.
"Most of us have uttered this familiar refrain: The movie is never as good as the book. About a Boy flies in the face of that maxim."
