In rural Iceland, a couple discovers a strange and unnatural newborn in their sheep barn and decide to raise it as their own. They soon face the consequences of defying the will of nature in this eerie folk tale depicting humanity and the natural world living uncomfortably side-by-side.
‘I laughed out loud… and had nightmares later.’
Simran Hans, The Observer
‘Johannsson treats the admittedly ridiculous material with a convincing, deadpan seriousness and is supported at every step by his star performer on impeccable form.’

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!
