Hoard18

Directed by Luna Carmoon | UK | 2023 | 2h 6m | Starring Saura Lightfoot-Leon, Joseph Quinn, Samantha Spiro, Hayley Squires, Cathy Tyson.

Seven-year-old Maria lives in South London with her mother, an obsessive hoarder, in a home filled with love and mounting heaps of rubbish. As Maria grows into her teenage years, she attempts to rediscover the magic of her childhood, a quest which intensifies when she develops a primal connection with an older man at her foster home. British writer-director Luna Carmoon draws from personal experiences to create this visceral psychological drama, tackling themes of grief, trauma, and burgeoning sexuality.

Reviews

‘Takes you on a wild journey. And as a filmmaker, Carmoon is a one-woman war on cliché. Proudly strange and provocative, but a major debut all the same.’
★★★★★
David Jenkins, Little White Lies

‘Carmoon is very much her own film-maker — and in Lightfoot Leon she has found a leading lady with animalistic, inhibited presence.’
★★★★
Ed Potton, The Times

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!
