Mother and Son12A
In the late 1980s, Rose moves from the Ivory Coast to the Paris suburbs with her two young sons. Spanning 20 years from their arrival in France to the present day, this moving drama chronicles the construction and deconstruction of a family. Writer and director Leonor Serraille, whose debut feature Jeune Femme won the Golden Camera (Best Debut) Award at Cannes in 2017, crafts a beautifully tender portrait of a family in this novelistic drama about feminine strength.
‘Examines the illusory dividing line between childhood and adulthood, innocence and experience, present and past.’
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

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!
