Between Two Worlds12A

Directed by Emmanuel Carrère | France | 2021 | 1h 47m | French w/ English subtitles | Starring Juliette Binoche, Hélène Lambert, Louise Pociecka, Steve Papagiannis

A celebrated author goes undercover as a cleaner on a cross-Channel ferry to research an upcoming book. She forms close bonds with her fellow workers, but sooner or later, must face up to the ethical problems that her methods entail. Juliette Binoche stars in this thoughtful drama based on French journalist Florence Aubenas’s bestselling non-fiction work Le Quai de Ouistreham.

Reviews

‘Although Binoche is the film’s star, her presence is smartly muted, allowing us time and space to discover the world as she does, and providing room for complexity in considering the ethics of his character’s work and of Carrère’s film itself.’
★★★★
Dave Calhoun, Time Out

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
