Capital Celluloid 2015 - Day 232: Thu Aug 20

45 Years (Davies, 2015): BFI Southbank, NFT1, 6.10pm


One of the most anticipated films of the year. This is a special preview screening with director Andrew Haigh and stars Tom Courtneay and Charlotte Rampling on hand to discuss the film afterwards. The event is a sell-out but BFI Southbank will get returns so try calling the box office or going along on the night to see if you can get in.

Here is the BFI introduction:
Geoff and Kate Mercer (Courtenay and Rampling) are planning a reception to duplicate their wedding 45 years ago when a letter addressed to Geoff brings back memories of a previous relationship. A study in regret, this Norfolk-set drama from director Andrew Haigh (Weekend) delivers an emotional fragility and tension that wowed critics at its Berlin International Film Festival premiere.

Here (and above) is the trailer.
