Bridesmaids star Byrne is on top form as Annie, whose boyfriend Duncan (O’Dowd) is devoted to rock star Tucker Crowe (Hawke). After Annie pans his music online, Tucker gets in touch with her and a deep correspondence develops… Caught between these two far-from-perfect men, Annie must decide what’s most important to her.

FIRST REFORMED (15) – 2017 USA 113 min

Director: Paul Schrader
Stars: Ethan Hawke, Amanda Seyfried, Cedric Kyles

Reverend Ernst Toller (a great performance by Hawke) is the pastor of a small parish church in New York. Once a stop on the Underground Railroad, it is now a tourist attraction with a dwindling congregation, eclipsed by a modern church nearby. When pregnant parishioner Mary (Seyfried) asks Toller to counsel her radical environmentalist husband, the clergyman finds himself grappling with his own tormented past and equally despairing future – until he finds redemption. ‘This mesmerising drama of a pastor’s crisis of faith feels like the movie Schrader was put on this planet to make’ (Washington Post).

Plus a BRIT School Showcase film, screened in partnership with the School’s Film & Media Production department. For this film we are showing SNARE (15) (3.16 min), directed by Theo Batterham, explores a theme of being trapped; contrasting the influence of countryside and city environments.
