Tasked with mapping the border between Bolivia and Brazil, British Army major Percival Fawcett discovers what may be traces of a previous unknown civilization.

Ridiculed by the establishment, he returned with a wealthy sponsor, and again after the First World War.

Gray captures both the danger of the South American jungle and the pressures of society and family back home, with Miller excellent as Fawcett’s wife Nina. “Transporting and profound… an instant classic” (Daily Telegraph).

News Update 14 May 2017

Six consecutive days of screenings at the David Lean in the last week – Friday’s was a charity event – has reinforced the progress made since 2014, when Thursday screenings were less frequently supplemented by others. Last Thursday’s The Handmaiden was notable for being our third consecutive 18 certificate film to attract a capacity audience (following T2 Trainspotting and Elle), providing reassurance that this certificate isn’t a commercial liability.

There’s another opportunity to see A Silent Voice on Tuesday.

Tickets will be available at our box office. Thursday’s A Quiet Passion, the acclaimed portrait of poet Emily Dickinson, has proved so popular that we must recommend advance booking if you plan to see this; particularly in relation to the almost sold out 14:30pm screening.
