Capital Celluloid 2016 - Day 187: Wed Jul 6

The Neon Demon (Winding Refn, 2016): BFI Southbank, NFT1, 8.45pm

The most hotly anticipated film of the moment gets a special preview screening at BFI Southbank ahead of its general release on Friday 7th July.

BFI Southbank introduction:
When aspiring model Jesse (Fanning) moves to LA, her youth and vitality are coveted by a group of beauty-obsessed women who will use any means necessary to get what she has. On his inspiration for the film, Refn (Drive, Only God Forgives) told The Hollywood Reporter, ‘one morning I woke and realised I was both surrounded and dominated by women. Strangely, a sudden urge was planted in me to make a horror film about vicious beauty.’

Here (and above) is the trailer.
