Thirteen-year-olds Léo and Rémi are inseparable; they spend every waking moment together, playing in the fields and sleeping at each other’s houses. However as they begin a new school year, the pressures of early adolescence challenge their bond with unexpected consequences. Featuring incredibly emotional performances by its two lead actors, Lukas Dhont’s award-winning drama is a powerful coming-of-age story about male friendship, intimacy, and masculinity. Nominated for Best International Feature at this year’s Oscars.
‘An exceptional film of empathy and vision. Director Lukas Dhont has followed up his film Girl with the tear-jerkingly sweet and tender buddy story’
Nicholas Barber, BBC
‘To the pantheon of films about the pains of leaving childhood behind — The 400 Blows, The Spirit of the Beehive, Rocks, The Go-Between, Boyhood et al — we should find a spot for this beautiful elegy of lost innocence’
Philip De Semlyen, 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!
