Inspired by the extraordinary real-life events sparked by tenacious hairdresser Liz Evans (Samantha Morton), a linchpin in her local community in the small town of Carmarthen. Her mission is to stop The Lyric Theatre from being demolished and turned into a shopping centre.
Liz and her friends barricade themselves in the cinema, and with the help of postman turned local councillor Richard (Tom Felton), they come up with a grand plan. To revitalise the cinema and stop the council taking the heart of the community away, a desperate Liz persuades Richard to write to Hollywood to ask for a helping hand.
One late night phone call later and one of Hollywood’s most legendary filmmakers throws The Lyric a monster-sized lifeline and a premiere Carmarthen will never forget. But will this be enough to save The Lyric?
This is an unashamedly feelgood film with a David vs Goliath theme that will warm hearts of all ages and restore your faith in what a community can achieve by coming together and resisting seemingly overwhelming odds.
