  • Directed by: Pablo Larrain
  • Cast: Natalie Portman, Peter Sarsgaard, John Hurt

Impressionistic, non-linear portrait of Jacqueline Kennedy, with an agonising, in-depth performance by Portman, who is gripping either while giving a shy television tour of the White House, or going to pieces in a bathroom. A mesmerising, technically virtuosic and remarkable reflection on celebrity, memory and the determined individual crafting history.

Ruth (Lowe) is an expectant mother who starts to hear her unborn baby urging her to kill people. Lowe's blackly comic, squirmingly uncomfortable directorial debut is remarkably well-realised, with an impressive cast and her own eerily passive, brilliantly-timed performance at the core. Enjoyably provocative.

PREVENGE

Dir: Alice Lowe, 2016, UK, 88 mins, Cert: 18 TBA - Tue 28 February // 20:00 Wed 1 March // 20:00 Thu 2 March // 20:00 Tickets: £5 (Full) / £4 (Conc) A pitch black, wryly British comedy from the mind of Alice Lowe, Prevenge follows Ruth, a pregnant woman on a killing spree. It's her misanthropic unborn baby dictating Ruth's actions, holding society responsible for the absence of a father. The child speaks to Ruth from the womb, coaching her to lure and ultimately kill her unsuspecting victims. Struggling with her conscience, loneliness, and a strange strain of prepartum madness, Ruth must ultimately choose between redemption and destruction at the moment of motherhood. Having shown at Venice, Toronto and most recently the London International Film Festival, Prevenge marks the directorial debut from Lowe, who is a true triple threat, writing, directing, and acting in the film during her own real-life pregnancy.

*On-line tickets are on sale until 4 hours before the advertised start time.*
