The Man Who Fell to Earth Rated 18

The Made in Britain season continues with this Nic Roeg sci-fi classic in an adaptation of Walter Tevis’ novel about an alien who comes to Earth seeking a solution to his home planet’s woes, only to find himself lost in an unfamiliar, corrupt and sometimes hostile society.

Made in Britain is a summer season brought to us by StudioCanal and ICO. It celebrates some of the finest, most entertaining and quirkiest cinema that this sceptred isle has ever produced. The Made in Britain season is a national screening event that will take place every Tuesday from June 5th to July 3rd inclusively, and will see all films screen digitally in cinemas across the country.

The season is (cucumber) sandwiched between the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the Olympics and will give audiences across the country the opportunity to enjoy five restored classic British films on the big screen. The five films have been chosen to illustrate the breadth of the work that has been produced by British filmmakers over the last century, and range from post-war comedy to ground-breaking sci-fi.

"There are quite a few science-fiction movies scheduled to come out in the next year or so. We shall be lucky if even one or two are as absorbing and as beautiful as The Man Who Fell to Earth." Richard Eder, New York Times
