WHAT THEY HAD (15) – 2018 USA 101 mins

The 2.30pm screening is subtitled for people with hearing loss

Director: Elizabeth Chomko
Stars: Hilary Swank, Michael Shannon, Robert Forster, Blythe Danner

Ruth, a beloved matriarch, is in the later stages of dementia and beginning to slip away. When her daughter, Bridget, receives a call to say that her mother has wandered off in the middle of the night, she must return to her childhood home to help her brother persuade their intransigent father to seek help for his ailing wife. It is time to move forward and make peace with the past – but none of them are ready. What They Had features an outstanding cast with performances to move cinemagoers to both laughter and tears.

Something of a quiet triumph thanks to those two non-negotiables: cast and script – ★★★★ Ed Potton, The Sunday Times

 

The 7:30pm programme will also include our current BRIT School Showcase film Something That I Never Thought I’d Do (PG), a music video directed by Richard Russell. There will also be a short Q&A with the film makers.
