The 1980 Wimbledon men’s singles final was one of tennis’s great five-set thrillers – a marathon battle of technique, nerve and stamina. While this was apparently a clash of opposites – “ice-man” Björn Borg against “Superbrat” John McEnroe – director Metz and Swedish ace Gudnason take time to explore the superstitions, obsessions and stewing emotions underneath Borg’s stoic exterior, while LaBeouf is a natural fit in both looks and reputation as the young American upstart. You don’t need to be a sports enthusiast to enjoy this one.

 

Plus a BRIT School Showcase film, screened in partnership with the School’s Film & Media Production department.

For November we are showing ‘In the Middle of Nowhere’ (3.09 mins), directed by Lauryn Jackman. In this poetic film, a young woman searches for her identity.
 
A different film will be shown at selected screenings each month.

David Lean Cinema, Croydon on Thursday 2nd November 2017

Shows start at 2.30 pm & 7.30 pm, ticket prices: £8.00 & £6.50 (concessions)
