Tender and captivating film, part of the Latin Summer screenings
Salles, director of The Motorcycle Diaries and On The Road, is the master of meandering movies. And Central Station is no exception. It follows the story of Dora, a middle aged women who befriends a young boy and escorts him across Brazil to find the father he never knew. We have a lump in our throats already. Lush cinematography pans over the beauty of South America, and never strays from the path of tender and gritty reality. General admission. Over 15s only. Alcohol is permitted on site, but no glass. Doors open 7:30pm, film starts at 8:30pm.
"As beautiful as it is wrenching."
