THE BOY AND THE BEAST (12A) – 2015 Japan 119 min – subtitled
Friday 29 December 2017 at 11:00 am
Director: Mamoru Hosoda
Stars: Koji Yakusho, Aoi Miyazaki, Shota Sometani
Young runaway Kyuta slips into a parallel world – a Japan-like civilisation of intelligent beasts, where he becomes the apprentice of the strong but wayward Kumatetsu. As they mature together, Kyuta and his master must both overcome great challenges to fulfil their destinies.
Hugely entertaining, this action-packed contrast to Hosada’s previous gem Wolf Children maintains his visual and narrative flair and ability to create deep characters full of human (and animal!) emotion. “Excellent… there has not been a film that shifts between reality and fantasy so smoothly since Pan’s Labyrinth” (Sight and Sound).
Show starts at 11.00 am, ticket prices: £8.00 & £6.50 (concessions)
