EATEN BY LIONS (12A)

Wednesday 4th September 2019 - 7:30 pm

Dir: Jason Wingard, 2018, UK, 99 mins.
With Jack Carroll, Antonio Aakeel, Asim Chaudhry, Johnny Vegas.

An 'unexpected treat: a really happy multicultural comedy'.  No one, you will be relieved to learn, is actually eaten by a lion except, that is, Omar's mum and dad some time before the narrative begins.  This makes orphans of teenager Omar and his half-brother Pete who, after the death of their gran, set out on a quest of discovery to the bright lights of Blackpool.  It's a very funny take on the hazards besetting two endearingly naive boys let loose in the big wide world.
