Capital Celluloid 2012 - Day 188: Fri July 6

Electrick Children (Thomas, 2012): Hackney Picturehouse, 6.30pm
This movie is screening as part of the East End Film Festival which runs from July 3rd to the 8th.
More details here.

Time Out review:
'An intriguing if uneven US indie, as Rachel, the sheltered child of Mormon separatists, believes she's been divinely impregnated and sets out to seek answers. Much of the film is founded on wild coincidence and dubious magic-realist happenstance, which tends to undermine its occasional moments of insight. But with glorious magic-hour photography, striking performances from Garner in the lead and Culkin as the sad-eyed hipster wannabe who takes her in, and a confidently sustained mood of uneasy discovery, Electrick Children is worth catching.' Tom Huddleston 
Here is the trailer.
