In Detail

William Nicholson has painted this portrait of an unhappy marriage with great skill and sensitivity.

This is a signal achievement, given that the material is heartfelt and autobiographical: the lightly fictionalised story of his own parents' marriage, seen through the eyes of their adult son, who loves them both, blames neither and recognises his own helplessness in salvaging the situation. He has created two memorable characters, superbly acted by Bill Nighy and Annette Bening.

We hope to welcome Kelly Mikulla and Debi Carter from the Sussex Film Office who worked on this film, to introduce the film and short Q&A after the screening.
