Wednesday 5th September 2018 - 7:30 pm

Dir: Lynne Ramsay, 2017, UK, 95 mins.
With Joaquin Phoenix, Alessandro Nivola, Ekaterina Samsonov, Judith Anna Roberts.

5 Stars. ‘A work that reconfirms Ramsay as one of the most thrillingly distinctive and daring film-makers of her generation’. (Mark Kermode).  Joe is a hired gun whose speciality is rescuing missing children.  He’s a mentally damaged war veteran with a reputation for brutality, yet who also cares for his elderly mother with tenderness and affection.  What he seeks is redemption and escape from a past that is forever haunting him.
