On 21 February 1896, it became the birthplace of cinema in the UK, when the Lumière brothers used their Cinematographé machine to show the earliest of moving images to a paying audience. Having reopened in May 2015, the staff have been dedicated to engaging with the cinema's groundbreaking legacy, showcasing everything from classic films, internationally acclaimed work and even the odd blockbuster.
Young mother Iona (Ruth Negga) and her teenage son Bull (Ben Gallagher) seek refuge among a Christian community on the Scottish island where she was born. Iona’s return exposes Bull to a way of life she rejected when she left the island as a teenager. As Bull seeks forgiveness from an act of violence from which he and his mother are hiding, Iona comes to terms with her loss of faith.
