Director Annabel Jankel, novelist Fiona Shaw, screenwriters The Ashworth Sisters, and cast members Gregor Selkirk, Emun Elliott, Kate Dickie and Lauren Lyle will attend the screening on Fri 22 Feb.


The Scotland of 1952 is no place for the faint-hearted. When mill worker Lydia (Holliday Grainger) is abandoned by her philandering husband, she struggles to pay the rent and feed herself and son Charlie (Gregor Selkirk). Local doctor Jean (Anna Paquin) is one of the few to help and a friendship develops that blossoms into a romance that will scandalise the town. Director Annabel Jankel has crafted a sensitive adaptation of the Fiona Shaw novel that captures oppressive small town life and the way love has the power to challenge narrow minds and deep-rooted prejudices.
