In Depression-era America, a fugitive named Grace arrives at a small town in the Rocky Mountains while on the run from the mob. Offering to work in exchange for asylum, Grace is welcomed in by the locals. But as they come to expect more favours from her, Grace hides a dangerous secret from them. Filmed on a barren soundstage, Lars Von Trier presents a nightmarish vision of American society as well as the darker impulses of human nature.
‘Bold stylistic decisions reinforce the themes of the narrative, while a strong story and convincing performances prove equal to the task of carrying such an extended running time.’
Alan Morrison, Empire Magazine

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!
