Love According to Dalva15
Twelve-year-old Dalva lives alone with her father. One evening, the police storm into their home and take Dalva into foster care. As Dalva befriends her new roommate Samia and social worker Jayden, she gradually comes to understand that her relationship with her father was not what she thought. In her poignant feature debut, Emmanuelle Nicot explores the ramifications of abuse with sensitivity and grace, rejecting sensationalism and instead examining the complexity of coercive and controlling relationships.
‘By remaining solely within Dalva’s (Zelda Samson) perspective, Nicot abruptly flips the script on the conventional abuse narrative, stubbornly yanking the character out of victim mode and giving her autonomy.’

Plan your visit
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!
