Dance First

James Marsh | 2023 | 100 MINS
UK
The amazing story of Samuel Beckett’s life: Parisian bon vivant, World War II Resistance fighter, Nobel Prize-winning playwright, philandering husband and recluse.

In Detail

But despite all the adulation that came his way, he was a man acutely aware of his own failings.

Titled after Beckett's famous ethos ‘Dance first, think later’, the film is a sweeping account of the life of this 20th-century icon.

Gabriel Byrne (‘The Usual Suspects,’ ‘Miller's Crossing’) plays the inimitable Irishman with Aidan Gillen (‘Game of Thrones’) playing James Joyce.

Sandrine Bonnaire (a standout performance) and Maxine Peake play the principal women in Beckett’s life in this film by James Marsh who is best known for ‘The Theory of Everything.’
