Bernard MacLaverty will attend the screening.

Pat O’Connor’s screen version of Bernard MacLaverty’s Cal is a modern Irish classic with a deeply felt performance from Helen Mirren that won her the Best Actress award at Cannes. Cal (a superb John Lynch) is a young working-class lad in Ulster and a minor figure in the IRA. He becomes infatuated with Marcella (Mirren), a lonely, widowed librarian. The love affair that ensues reflects the tangled complexities and tragedies of the Troubles as experienced by ordinary people trapped in a world of violence and division. Screening on 35mm.
