Edie (12A) 

Thursday July 5

 


 

To try and overcome a lifetime of bitterness and resentment, an elderly woman embarks on a trip to fulfill her longtime dream of climbing a mountain in the Scottish Highlands. Spectacular scenery and starring Sheila Hancock, joined by Kevin Guthrie and Paul Brannigan, both who appeared in another great film ‘Sunshine on Leith’

 

The dynamic between Hancock and Guthrie is wonderful to behold, their bickering producing plenty of humorous moments as Edie and Jonny suss each other out and build trust in one another. The film is set in the Scottish highlands, with the scenery playing an important role in the film. Jamie Neish (Cinevue)

92% on Rotten Tomatoes review

Sally Potter’s 71-minute film The Party is a short, sharp, funny shock of a movie; a theatrical drawing-room comedy which plays out in real time with elegance and dispatch, cantering up to a cheeky punchline twist which leaves you laughing over the final credits. It’s written and directed by Potter, and the action is starkly lit and shot in black and white by Russian cinematographer Aleksei Rodionov. (Peter Bradshaw for the Guardian)
