The latest film from Sam Mendes (Skyfall, 1917) is a poignant story of human connection and the magic of film.

Set in and around a faded old cinema in an English coastal town in the early 1980s, it follows Hilary a cinema manager struggling with her mental health, and Stephen, a new employee who longs to escape this provincial town in which he faces daily adversity. Both Hilary and Stephen find a sense of belonging through their unlikely and tender relationship and come to experience the healing power of music, cinema, and community.

Nominated for a BAFTA for Outstanding British Film.
