We're delighted to welcome writer David Scinto and cinematographer Ivan Bird for a post-screening Q&A.
Gary ‘Gal’ Dove (Ray Winstone) has retired from the game and emigrated from London to the sunnier climes of the Costa Del Sol. Here, he’s enjoying the good life in his swanky villa, soaking up the rays on the poolside with his loving wife (Amanda Redman). That is, however, until the unexpected arrival of one of Gal’s old colleagues from the crime world. Don Logan (played with chilling intensity by Ben Kingsley) has travelled to Spain to recruit Gal for one last spectacular and daring heist. But Gal is adamant that he will not work again – a sentiment that does not go down so well with Logan.
Jonathan Glazer's directorial debut is a punchy, stylish affair full of visual flourishes and benefits from an intelligent, multi-layered and witty script – performed with aplomb by a quality British cast at the top of their game. A thriller, a comedy and a touching love story, this is an original beast from the director who would go on to make Under The Skin.
Presented on 35mm.
