Stoker + Sympathy For Lady Vengeance

Two films from Chan-Wook Park

Here's your chance to catch an exciting double bill of acclaimed South Korean director Park Chan-Wook's work. The director's films are noted for their immaculate framing and often brutal subject matter. Often one for pushing the regulated boundaries of the industry, Chan Wook once filmed an entire short movie on a iPhone, a risk that paid off as it won a Golden Bear for Best Short Film at the 2011 Berlin Film Festival. The first film to be showcased tonight is 'Sympathy for Lady Vengeance'. A harrowing tale that follows a young woman, betrayed by a friend for a murder she did not commit. Destined to spend her formative years in jail, she vows that on her release, she will seek revenge on the man she once trusted with her life. The film earned 23 nominations worldwide and raving reviews on the eccentric mix of violence and emotion that Chan-Wook blends so well. The second film to be shown is 'Stoker', starring Nicole Kidman and Mia Wasikowska. When India's father dies, her long lost uncle Charlie comes to live with her and her emotionally unstable mother. All seems well, however soon after his arrival, India comes to suspect that this mysterious and charming man has ulterior motives. This was the last film Tony Scott co-produced before his death. 'A gorgeously mounted family mystery dressed up as a gothic fairytale.' - The Guardian (on 'Stoker'). General admission. Over 18s only please. Tickets are normally £9.50 + £4 for a glass of wine or beer. You pay £12, saving you up to £1.50 per ticket. Please arrive on time.
